Dynamic scaling of manipulator trajectories. (English) Zbl 0543.93031

Summary: A fundamental time-scaling property of manipulator dynamics has been identified that allows modification of movement speed without complete dynamics recalculation. By exploiting this property, it can be determined whether a planned trajectory is dynamically realizable given actuator torque limits, and if not, how to modify the trajectory to bring it within dynamic and actuating constraints.
