Abstract

Generally, point-to-point control for a completely restrained (CR) parallel-wire-driven system requires a balancing internal force to prevent slackening of wires, along with a feedback term based on some displacement sensor. This paper specifically describes CR systems' internal force properties, then presents the possibility of motion convergence at a desired position when the internal force balancing at a position is given as sensorless feedforward input. Subsequently, we use the property of internal force positively for sensorless position control. This positioning method is applicable for low-cost manipulation, which does not require high accuracy, and for emergency positioning of systems when sensors malfunction.
