Abstract

A method is presented that improves the computational efficiency of time-optimal path-following planning algorithms for robot manipulators with limited actuator torques. The approach exploits the fact that the characteristic switching points of earlier techniques can be found directly in a straightforward fashion. Numerical examples show the consistency of the algorithm with the existing techniques and demonstrate its potential for increasing computational efficiency by several orders of magnitude.
