Automatic stabilization of the translational motion of a microrobot
The analog motion control of a microrobot with feedback requires a more complicated structure due to the corresponding sensors, microprocessors and actuators. Application of the digital control system allows the use of a control algorithm, such as the autopilot, without feedback, which allows us to simplify the system. We consider the stabilization of the motion of the microrobot on a horizontal surface along the given motion trajectory. Minimization of the deviation angle of the robot’s axis from the tangent to the motion trajectory is a criterion for quality control and can be implemented by the digital device with a hysteresis characteristic.
