Abstract

A methodology for simultaneous structure and motion specific tasks with its associated control system is presented in this paper. The methodology is based on the Trajectory Pattern Method (TPM) presented in our earlier papers. The advocated methodology is illustrated on an important class of problems, namely flexible slewing structures. The class of systems considered encompasses multi-link manipulators, high speed positioning stages, and pointing systems to name a few. Specifically, the simultaneous structure and motion specific methodology is applied to a flexible pointing system with added piezoelectric ceramic actuators for vibration damping and pointing purposes.
