Design High Efficiency Intelligent Robust Backstepping Controller
International Journal of Information Engineering and Electronic Business
The increasing demand for multi-degree-offreedom (DOF) continuum robot in presence of highly nonlinear dynamic parameters in a number of industries has motivated a flurry of research in the development of soft computing nonlinear methodology. This research contributes to the on-going research effort by exploring alternate methods for controlling the continuum robot manipulator. This research addresses two basic issues related to the control of a continuum robots; (1) a more accurate
... on of the dynamic model of an existing prototype, and (2) the design of a robust feedback controller. The robust back stepping controller proposed in this research is used to further demonstrate the appealing features exhibited by the continuum robot. Robust feedback controller is used to position control of continuum robot in presence of uncertainties. Using Lyapunov type stability arguments, a robust back stepping controller is designed to achieve this objective. The controller developed in this research is designed into two steps. Firstly, a robust stabilizing torque is designed for the nominal continuum robot dynamics derived using the constrained Lagrangian formulation. Next, the fuzzy logic methodology applied to it to solution uncertainty problem. The fuzzy model free problem is formulated to minimize the nonlinear formulation of continuum robot. The eventual stability of the controller depends on the torque generating capabilities of the continuum robots.
