Abstract

A novel adaptive control law for the end-effector tracking problem of underwater vehicle-manipulator systems (UVMS) is presented. By exploiting the serial-chain structure of the UVMS, the overall control problem is decomposed in a set of elementary control problems, each of them formulated with respect to a single rigid body in the system. The proposed approach results in a modular control scheme which simplifies application to multibody systems with a large number of links, reduces the required computational burden, and allows efficient implementation on distributed computing architectures. Furthermore, the occurrence of kinematic and representation singularities is overcome, respectively, by expressing the control law in body-fixed coordinates and representing the attitude via the unit quaternion. To show the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy, a simulation case study is developed for a vehicle in spatial motion carrying a 6-DOF manipulator
