2.1 Earlier Research on Flexible Manipulators

Interest in the utilization of flexible manipulators for space exploration and automation started in the early 1980s. For example, Nguyen et al. [1] investigated the dynamics and control of the space shuttle manipulator arm. In 1984, Cannon and Schmitz published one of the first papers on the control of flexible manipulators [2]. Book [3] investigated the dynamics of flexible manipulators using a recursive Lagrangian formulation. In 1985, Sakawa et al. [4] considered the feedback control problem inherent in flexible arms. Yang and Donath [5] formulated a dynamic ...
