This paper focuses on viable position estimation schemes for timing belt drives where the position of the carriage (load) is to be calculated via reference models accepting input from a position sensor on the actuator of the timing belt. A detailied analysis on the source of transmission errors is presented a number of relevant mathematical modeis are developed utilizing a priori knowledge on the process. The paper illustrates that such schemes are very effective when the drive system is not subjected to external loads es well as widely changing operating conditions such as ambient temperature, belt tension.
