ABSTRACT
This paper describes a network system designed to realize the motion of a muscle. First, the motion of the network system is analyzed by a model system which consists of many electromagnets. Second, the control strategy of the network motion system, implemented with microactuators, is described. In the proposed network motion system, the total system consists of many force signals propagated by the lines acts on the final actuator. The proposed motion control method is therefore called the Delay Superposition Method (DSM). Several experimental and numerical results confirm the validity of the proposed method.

    In this paper we propose a control strategy for a robot joint which fully mimics the typical human joint structure. The joint drive is based on two actuators (dc motors), agonist and antagonist, acting through compliant tendons and forming a nonlinear multi-input multi-output (MIMO) system. At...

    Multi-rate controllers are useful in providing fast control updates using slow measurements. The multi-rate control loop involves up-sampling, down-sampling, and systems considered at different timescales. The challenge is then, to present complete frequency domain model of the loop.
