Abstract : The feasibility of controlling a flexible one-link manipulator with an adaptive computer simulation model, called a curve following system, is investigated. At the beginning a very flexible unloaded arm is used. Later the stiffness of the arm is increased, until we reach the case of a flexible arm that can be used in practice. Finally load is added to the arm and its behavior is studied. (Author)
