a nonlinear feedback controller for aerial self righting by a tailed robotInternational Conference on Robotics and Automation, 2013Co-Authors: Evan Changsiu, Thomas Libby, Matthew Brown, Robert J Full, Masayoshi TomizukaAbstract:
In this work, we propose a control scheme for attitude control of a falling, two link active tailed robot with only two degrees of freedom of actuation. We derive a simplified expression for the robot’s Angular momentum and invert this expression to solve for the shape velocities that drive the body’s Angular momentum to a desired value. By choosing a body Angular Velocity Vector parallel to the axis of error rotation, the controller steers the robot towards its desired orientation. The proposed scheme is accomplished through feedback laws as opposed to feedforward trajectory generation, is fairly robust to model uncertainties, and is simple enough to implement on a miniature microcontroller. We verify our approach by implementing the controller on a small (175 g) robot platform, enabling rapid maneuvers approaching the spectacular capability of animals.

Time-Optimal Attitude Reorientation at Constant Angular Velocity Magnitude with Bounded Angular AccelerationProceedings of the 45th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control, 2006Co-Authors: Mrityunjay Modgalya, Sanjay P. BhatAbstract:
This paper considers the problem of steering the orientation of an inertially symmetric rigid body of unit moment of inertia from an initial attitude and nonzero Angular Velocity to a specified terminal attitude in minimum time under an upper limit on the magnitude of Angular acceleration with the magnitude of the Angular Velocity constrained to remain constant. Optimal control theory is used to show that singular optimal arcs are uniform eigenaxis rotations in which the body rotates at a uniform rate about a body-fixed axis, while nonsingular arcs are coning motions in which the body Angular Velocity Vector rotates at a uniform rate about a body-fixed axis. Symmetries of the problem are exploited to further show that every optimal trajectory consists of at most one coning motion followed either by one uniform eigenaxis rotation or several coning motions of equal duration

Spacecraft attitude tracking in the presence of input magnitude constraintsProceedings of the 2000 American Control Conference. ACC (IEEE Cat. No.00CH36334), 2000Co-Authors: P.o. Arambel, V. Manikonda, R.k. MehraAbstract:
We introduce a control strategy for tracking any feasible attitude trajectory in the presence of input magnitude constraints. To achieve asymptotic tracking without violating the constraints, the control strategy uses a combination of an exponentially convergent nonlinear controller, a “polhode” controller that exploits the geometry of the reduced dynamics to steer the Angular Velocity Vector and a time-scaling approach for reference trajectory redesign.
