2 Introduction Robot arm dynamics deals with the mathematical formulations of the equations of robot arm motion. They are useful as: An insight into the structure of the robot system. A basis for model based control systems. A basis for computer simulations.

3 Equations of Motion The way in which the motion of the manipulator arises from torques applied by the actuators, or from external forces applied to the manipulator.

4 Forward and Inverse Dynamics Given a trajectory point, and find the required vectors of joint torques, Given a torque vector, calculate the resulting motion of the manipulator, and : problem of controlling the manipulator : problem of simulating the manipulator

5 Two Approaches Energy based: Lagrange-Euler. Simple and symmetric. Momentum/force approach:Newton- Euler. Efficient, derivation is simple but messy, involves vector cross product. Allow real time control.

6 Newton-Euler Algorithm Newton-Euler method is described briefly below. The goal is to provide a big picture understanding of these methods without getting lost in the details.

7 Newton-Euler Algorithm Newton-Euler formulations makes two passes over the links of manipulator Forces, moments Velocities, Accelerations Gravity

8 Newton-Euler Algorithm Forward computation First compute the angular velocity, angular acceleration, linear velocity, linear acceleration of each link in terms of its preceding link. These values can be computed in recursive manner, starting from the first moving link and ending at the end-effector link. The initial conditions for the base link will make the initial velocity and acceleration values to zero.

9 Newton-Euler Algorithm Backward computation Once the velocities and accelerations of the links are found, the joint forces can be computed one link at a time starting from the end-effector link and ending at the base link.

10 Acceleration of a Rigid Body Linear and angular accelerations:

11 Linear Acceleration : origins are coincident. : re-write it as. : by differentiating.

12 the case in which the origins are not coincident : when is constant : the linear acceleration of the links of a manipulator with rotational joints. Linear Acceleration

13 Angular Acceleration : the angular acceleration of the links of a manipulator. B is rotation relative to A and C is rotating relative to B

14 Inertia If a force acts of a body, the body will accelerate. The ratio of the applied force to the resulting acceleration is the inertia (or mass) of the body. If a torque acts on a body that can rotate freely about some axis, the body will undergo an angular acceleration. The ratio of the applied torque to the resulting angular acceleration is the rotational inertia of the body. It depends not only on the mass of the body, but also on how that mass is distributed with respect to the axis.

15 Mass Distribution Inertia tensor- a generalization of the scalar moment of inertia of an object

16 Moment of Inertia The moment of inertia of a solid body with density w.r.t. a given axis is defined by the volume integral where r is the perpendicular distance from the axis of rotation.

17 for a discrete distribution of mass for a continuous distribution of mass Moment of Inertia  This can be broken into components as:

18 The inertia tensor relative to frame {A}: Mass moments of inertia Mass products of inertia Moment of Inertia

19 If we are free to choose the orientation of the reference frame, it is possible to cause the products of inertia to be zero. Principal axes. Principal moments of inertia.

20 Example 6.1 {C}{C}

21 Parallel Axis Theorem Relates the inertia tensor in a frame with origin at the center of mass to the inertia tensor w.r.t. another reference frame.

22 Measuring the Moment of Inertia of a Link Most manipulators have links whose geometry and composition are somewhat complex. A pragmatic option is to measure the moment of inertia of each link using an inertia pendulum. If a body suspended by a rod is given a small twist about the axis of suspension, it will oscillate with angular harmonic motion, the period of which is given by. where k is the torsion constant of the suspending rod, i.e., the constant ratio between the restoring torque and the angular displacement.

28 Force Balance Using result of force and torque balance: In iterative form:

29 The Iterative Newton-Euler Dynamics Algorithm 1st step: Link velocities and accelerations are iteratively computed from link 1 out to link n and the Newton- Euler equations are applied to each link. 2nd step: Forces and torques of iteration and joint actuator torques are computed recursively from link n back to link 1.

32 Inclusion of Gravity Forces The effect of gravity loading on the links can be included by setting, where G is the gravity vector.
