Since its introduction, the command shaping method to design command shapers as robust as possible based on the has been applied to the control of many types of flexible manipu- available infonnation on a given system (e.g., expected varialators and sthe effectiveness in the vibration suppression has been tion range of the natural frequency) . Unfortunately, the roverified. However, designing an effective command shaper requires a priori knowledge about the system parameters. Recently, some bustness of the shaper comes at the expense of the command efforts have been made to make the command shaper adapt to the shaper length, which means more delay in the response. Morechanges in the system parameters. In this paper, the indirect and _. over, this approach still requires a fair amount of a priori knowlthe direct adaptive command shaping methods in the time domain edge about the system parameters for proper design. The second are compared, especially in terms of the noise effect on the per- approach is to make the command shaper adapt to uncertain formance. Analysis shows that the direct approach is less sensitive . to the noise and this analytic result is verified by the proper simu- or varying system parameters. The indirect adaptive command lation. Finally, experimental results using the direct approach are shaping method has focused on the system identification either included. in the frequency domain ,  or in the time domain , .
