Multiaxis Contour Control - the State of the Art
Contour control is an important task for many motion control applications. This paper reviews the state-of-the-art control methods in academic research for contour tracking, including individual axis tracking control, cross coupled control and its variants, and other contour control methods, such as neural networks and velocity field control. Different methods for contour error estimation are also reviewed. Areas for future multiaxis contour control research are discussed.
