High-Performance Control of an Ultra-Compact Industrial Robot Arm
In recent years, automation has become more accessible to small- and medium-sized businesses, leading to an increase in popularity of ultra-compact and easy-to-integrate industrial robot arms like Mecademics Meca500. However, because of their size constraints, it is harder for these robots to accurately follow a programmed path. This research project aims to improve the path-tracking performance of Mecademics Meca500 robot using more sophisticated simulation and control techniques than the ones employed in typical industrial robots. Improving the path-accuracy of the Meca500 will strengthen Mecademics competitive advantage in the fast-paced industrial automation market.
