Experimental Characterization of Inverse Dynamics Guidance in Docking with a Rotating Target
MetadataShow full item record
A custom-made automatic balancing system enables micron-level-accurate coincidence of the center of mass and the center of rotation of the floating system, allowing the achievement of a quasi-torque-free rotation. An off- board, high-accuracy rotational metrology system and an off-board set of three large Helmholtz coils complete the test-bed.
