Space Robot Control for Unknown Target Handling
Space robot is now playing very important role in space activities. Especially in space station a few robot arms are working for construction and repairing. However these robots are so-called remote manipulators operated by astronauts. For future applications the space robot must be autonomous and is expected to maintain the failed satellites and to capture the space debris. This chapter deals with space robot control for unknown target in robust manner. To cope with unknown characteristics the sliding mode control is applied in this study.
