Abstract

In this paper Invasive Weed Optimization (IWO) was used to investigate the optimum values of the control parameters for the swing up of the Robogymnast. The Robogymnast is classified as an underactuated triple link pendulum. It was developed to study control problems associated with inverted pendulums. Like most underactuated robots the Robogymnast was built to exploit the natural dynamics of the mechanism. It mimics the human acrobat who hangs from a high bar and tries to swing-up to an upside-down position with his/her hands still on the bar. Two motors located on joint 2 (hips) and joint 3 (knees) control the movement of the mechanism. Joint 1 (hands/arms) is firmly attached to a freely rotating high bar mounted on ball bearings. IWO is used to optimize the swing up motion of the robot by determining the optimum values of parameters that control the input sinusoidal voltage of the two motors. The values obtained from IWO are then applied to both simulation and experiment. Results showed that the swing up of the Robogymnast from the stable downwards position to the inverted configuration was successfully achieved.
