Chapter . Active Interpolated Surfaces for Robotic Arm Control: The Potential for High Speed Implementation in FPGA
The main contribution of this paper is to introduce a novel control system, formulated to take advantage of recently developed FPGA hardware in application to robot arm control, to demonstrate the potential of FPGA for manufacturing processes. Robotic Arms are commonplace in manufacturing. Active interpolated surfaces offer easy implementation in FPGA hardware and thus have fast processing as well as speedy programming and modification times, allowing for wide areas of applicability. High speed implementation potentially offers flexibility and fast adaptation. This paper reports on an active interpolated surface ...
