**Adaptive iterative learning control for robot manipulators.**

Zbl 1051.93038

Summary: We propose some adaptive iterative learning control (ILC) schemes for trajectory tracking of rigid robot manipulators, with unknown parameters, performing repetitive tasks. The proposed control schemes are based upon the use of a proportional-derivative (PD) feedback structure, for which an iterative term is added to cope with the unknown parameters and disturbances. The control design is very simple in the sense that the only requirement on the PD and learning gains is the positive definiteness condition and the bounds of the robot parameters are not needed. In contrast to classical ILC schemes where the number of iterative variables is generally equal to the number of control inputs, the second controller proposed in this paper uses just two iterative variables, which is an interesting fact from a practical point of view since it contributes considerably to memory space saving in real-time implementations. We also show that it is possible to use a single iterative variable in the control scheme if some bounds of the system parameters are known. Furthermore, the resetting condition is relaxed to a certain extent for a certain class of reference trajectories. Finally, simulation results are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed controllers.
