This chapter briefly sums up the book.
In this book, discrete-time control systems with intelligent control approaches have been proposed for open-architecture industrial machineries.
Then, a novel and practical position/force control strategy has been designed for industrial machineries, such as an articulated-type industrial robot or an orthogonal-type robot, with an open-architecture controller. Three types of polishing robots and a machining system, listed below, have been introduced to show the effectiveness and promise of the proposed controllers.
• 3D robot sander developed based on KAWASAKI FS30L or FS20, which sands wooden parts used to construct furniture with artistic free-formed surfaces. ...
