Rotary Flexible Joint
Modelling flexible joints in a robotic arms
The Rotary Flexible Joint module is ideal for modelling a flexible joint on a robot when mounted on the Rotary Servo Base Unit. It is also useful in the study of vibration analysis and resonance. This experiment uses a sensor to measure joint deflection, to address the control problems encountered in large, geared robot joints where flexibility is exhibited in the gearbox. Students will learn how to model the system using state-space and design a feedback controller with pole-placement.
