Nonlinear Fuzzy Model-base Technique to Compensate Highly Nonlinear Continuum Robot Manipulator

By Farzin Piltan Mehdi Eram Mohammad Taghavi Omid Reza Sadrnia Mahdi Jafari

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Nov. 2013

Refer to this research, a gradient descent optimization methodology for position fuzzy- model based computed torque controller (GDFCTC) is proposed for highly nonlinear continuum robot manipulator. The main problem of the pure computed torque controller (CTC) was equivalent problem in uncertain systems. The simulation results exhibit that the CTC works well in certain system. To eliminate the continuum robot manipulator system’s dynamic; Mamdani fuzzy inference system is design and applied to CTC. This methodology is based on applied fuzzy logic in equivalent nonlinear dynamic part to estimate unknown parameters. This relatively controller is more plausible to implement in an actual real-time when compared to other techniques of nonlinear controller methodology of continuum arms. Based on the gradient descent optimization method, the PD-gain updating factor has been developed in certain and partly uncertain continuum robots. The new techniques proposed and methodologies adopted in this paper supported by MATLAB/SIMULINK results represent a significant contribution to the field of design an optimized nonlinear computed torque controller for continuum robots.

Design Artificial Intelligence-Based Switching PD plus Gravity for Highly Nonlinear Second Order System

By Farzin Piltan Mahdi Jafari Mehdi Eram Omid Mahmoudi Omid Reza Sadrnia

DOI:, Pub. Date: 29 Jun. 2013

Refer to this research, an intelligent fuzzy parallel switching Proportional-Derivative (PD) plus gravity controller is proposed for highly nonlinear continuum robot manipulator. Design a nonlinear controller for second order nonlinear uncertain dynamical systems is one of the most important challenging works. In order to provide high performance in nonlinear systems, switching partly sliding mode plus gravity controller is selected. Pure switching partly sliding mode plus gravity controller can be used to control of partly known nonlinear dynamic parameters of continuum robot manipulator. Conversely, this method is used in many applications; it must to solve chattering phenomenon which it can cause some problems such as saturation and heat the mechanical parts of continuum robot manipulators or drivers. In order to solve the chattering phenomenon, implement easily and avoid mathematical model base controller, Mamdani’s performance/error-based fuzzy logic methodology with two inputs and one output and 49 rules is parallel applied to pure switching partly sliding mode plus gravity controller. The results demonstrate that this method is a model-free controllers which works well in certain and partly uncertain system.
