AbstractThis paper presents a novel compensator-critic structure-based event-triggered decentralized tracking control of modular robot manipulators (MRMs). On the basis of subsystem dynamics under joint torque feedback (JTF) technique, the proposed tracking error fusion function, which includes position error and velocity error, is utilized to construct performance index function. By analyzing the dynamic uncertainties, a local dynamic information-based robust controller is designed to engage

Based on adaptive dynamic programming (ADP) algorithm and the event-triggered mechanism, the decentralized tracking control is obtained by solving the event-triggered Hamilton–Jacobi–Bellman equation (HJBE) with the critic neural network (NN). The tracking error of the closed-loop manipulators system is proved to be ultimately uniformly bounded (UUB) using the Lyapunov stability theorem. Finally, experimental results illustrate the effectiveness of the developed control method.
