• Practical models for practical flexible arms 

      Book, Wayne John; Obergfell, Klaus (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2000-04)
      A laboratory robot with 3m links is modeled using an assumed mode method. The model is compared to experiments and to several theoretical limiting cases. The most demanding comparison is the comparison of frequency response ...
    • Stability in active mass damping control of a flexible robot 

      Krauss, Ryan W.; Book, Wayne John (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2004-03)
      Active mass damping has been shown to be an effective method for reducing vibrations in flexible robots by previous researchers working on an experimental test bed at Georgia Tech. Acceleration feedback can cause instability ...
