Flexibility effects on robot manipulator design and control are typically ignored which is justified when large, bulky robotic mechanisms are moved at slow speeds However, when increased speed and improved accuracy is desired in robot system performance it is necessary to consider flexible manipulators. This project simulates the motion of a single-link, flexible manipulator using the Equivalent Rigid Link System dynamic model and experimentally validates the computer simulation results Validation of the flexible manipulator dynamic model is necessary to ensure confidence of the model for use in future design and control applications of flexible manipulators.
