Abstract

Robotic manipulators provide advantages in working environments regarding efficiency and safety, which is further increased in the case of elastic joint manipulators, whose mechanical compliance reduces the energy involved in collisions with workers. Cable-driven manipulators are elastic joint manipulators particularly suitable for industrial inspection thanks to the relocation of actuators outside hostile environments, increasing the manipulator payload-to-weight ratio. Recently, synthetic fibre cables are substituting steel cables due to their better-performing mechanical properties, but their visco-elastic behaviour must be compensated in the controller design. The key novelty of this work is using the four elements model, which includes the viscous behaviour, to design a non-linear full-state feedback controller for cable-driven manipulators. Furthermore, the mathematical proof of the closed-loop Lyapunov stability is provided.
