Title

Optimal Polynomial Trajectories for Robot Manipulators

Abstract

The planning of optimal trajectories for manipulators along a given path is discussed. The problem is formulated as an optimal control problem. The trajectories for each joint are described by piecewise polynomials splined at prescribed knot points. This reduces the function-space optimization problem to a finite dimensional mathematical programming problem. The order of the polynomial strongly influences the final solution and both quadratic and cubic splines are discussed. Some simulation results are presented.
