Application Solution for Multi-axis Robot Control Based on FET3568J-C CoM

Multi-axis robot control refers to the process of controlling the motion, position, and tasks of robots with multiple motion axes or joints. Multi-axis robots are typically comprised of multiple motors and joints, allowing them to move and perform various tasks across multiple degrees of freedom. Multi-axis robots are widely used in industry, manufacturing, healthcare, military, and service robots to improve production efficiency and perform various tasks.

Multi-axis robot control

The main core points for a multi-axis robot controller are as follows:

Joint control: The joints of a multi-axis robot are the basic units of its motion and are usually driven by motors. The control of each joint involves setting a target angle or position to achieve the desired movement.

Feedback control: Multi-axis robots are often equipped with sensors such as encoders, inertial sensors and vision sensors to provide real-time feedback. Feedback control allows the robot to correct motion errors and adjust its position and attitude to accommodate instabilities or external disturbances.

Task control: Multi-axis robot control also involves performing various tasks, such as grasping, assembling, welding, painting, and so on. Task control often requires advanced control algorithms and planners to implement complex action sequences.

Programming mode: Multi-axis robots can be controlled by different programming methods, including manual programming, off-line programming, teaching-based programming and automated programming. Each method has its own applicable scenarios and advantages.

Safety: Safety is very important in multi-axis robot control. Robots must be designed and operated to prevent hazardous situations and need to have emergency stop and collision detection.
