# Optimal Inverse Kinematic Solutions for Redundant Manipulators by Using Analytical Methods to Minimize Position and Velocity Measures

2013-08-01
Two methods are presented to obtain optimal inverse kinematic solutions for redundant manipulators, according to two different performance criteria stipulated in the position and velocity levels. Both methods are analytical throughout except their final stages, which involve the numerical solution of a simplified minimization problem in a position-level case and the numerical integration of a set of differential equations derived optimally in a velocity-level case. Owing to the analytical nature of the methods, the multiple and singular configurations of the manipulator of concern can be identified readily and studied in detail. The methods are applicable for both serial and parallel redundant manipulators. However, they are demonstrated here for a humanoid manipulator with seven revolute joints. In the demonstrations, the first performance criterion is stipulated in the position level as the minimization of the potential energy. In that case, the optimal inverse kinematic solution is first obtained in the position level for a specified position of the hand. Then, it is compatibly extended to the velocity level for a specified motion of the hand. In the main analytical part of the solution, six of the joint variables are expressed in terms of the selected seventh one. Then, the optimal value of the selected joint variable is determined numerically by a simple one dimensional scanning. The second performance criterion is stipulated in the velocity level as the minimization of the kinetic energy. In that case, the optimal inverse kinematic solution is first obtained in the velocity level and then extended to the position level by integration. The main analytical part of the solution provides an optimally determined set of nonlinear differential equations. These differential equations are then integrated numerically in order to obtain the corresponding solution in the position level. However, the corrections needed to eliminate the numerical integration errors are still obtained analytically. The distinct optimal behaviors of the manipulator according to the mentioned criteria are also illustrated and compared for a duration, in which the hand moves in the same specified way.

 Exact solution approaches for the directed bi-objective chinese postman problem Eroglu, Ezgi; Azizoğlu, Meral (2018-06-01) In this study, we consider a directed bi-objective Chinese Postman Problem with two additive objectives (like total cost and total distance) and propose two solution approaches to generate all non-dominated objective vectors. The first approach, namely classical approach, uses the optimal solutions of the mixed integer linear programs and generates the non-dominated objective vectors’ set sequentially. The second approach, namely branch and bound algorithm takes its spirit from the optimal solutions of the ...
 STABILITY OF CONTROL FORCES IN REDUNDANT MULTIBODY SYSTEMS IDER, SK (1996-01-03) In this paper inverse dynamics of redundant multibody systems using a minimum number of control forces is formulated. It is shown that the control forces and the task accelerations may become noncausal at certain configurations, yielding the dynamical equation set of the system to be singular. For a given set of tasks, each different set of actuators leads to a different system motion and also to different singular configurations. To avoid the singularities in the numerical solution, the dynamical equations...
 Nonlinear vibration isolation of inertial measurement unit Dönmez, Ata; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Özgen, Gökhan Osman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2018) In engineering systems, dynamic parameters of systems such as acceleration, velocity, etc. are measured instantaneously to provide feedback for control systems. Since measurement equipment is sensitive to vibratory environment, performance of them is directly related to how effectively vibration is isolated. Linear vibration isolation systems have limitations due to static deflections and damping characteristic. Therefore, nonlinear elements can be used to improve isolation performance.In this thesis, first...
 Optimal initialization of manipulation dynamics by vorticity model of robot hand preshaping. Part II: Analyses of grasp initialization and its vorticity based optimization Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Tekkaya, E (Wiley, 2000-04-01) Our work focuses on developing methods of determining the optimal preshape of a robot hand closing onto an object in order to achieve at contact a certain stability and manipulability degree based on kinematic considerations. This purposive closing of a preshaped hand should then be kinematically modelled in such a way that impact force patterns on the object can naturally be deduced from the model and be optimized such that upon contacting the object the desired optimum initial conditions of manipulation a...
