• Combined Command Shaping and Inertial Damping for Flexure Control 

      Magee, David P.; Cannon, David W.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1997-06)
      This paper describes a new control approach that combines command shaping and inertial damping to control small robots that are attached to the end of a flexible manipulator. The command shaping guarantees that the ...
    • Experimental Study on Micro/Macro Manipulator Vibration Control 

      Cannon, David W.; Magee, David P.; Lew, Jae Y.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1996-04)
      This work investigates issues related to vibration control in a micro/macro manipulator. This paper provides experimental results obtained by the combination of two dissimilar flexible control techniques to a micro/macro ...
    • Structural Vibration Control of Micro/Macro-Manipulator Using Feedforward and Feedback Approaches 

      Lew, Jae Young; Cannon, David W.; Magee, David P.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyPacific Northwest Laboratory, 1995-09)
      Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) researchers investigated the combined use of two control approaches to minimize micro/macro-manipulator structural vibration: 1) modified input shaping and 2) inertial force active damping ...
