Control of the motion of an acrobot approaching a horizontal bar
Abstract:In this paper, we consider the motion of a gymnast approaching a horizontal bar and focus on the acrobot. In the stance phase, we set the jump with a desired speed direction and a desirable angular momentum as the control objective, and achieve it by introducing an output feedback control with a suitably chosen output function. In the flight phase, a suitable desired trajectory enables us to control the posture when the acrobot approaches it. Finally, numerical simulations are shown to demonstrate this motion.
