Input Shaping is a technique that seeks to reduce residual vibrations through modification of the reference command given to a system. Namely the reference command is convolved with a suitable train of impulses. Input shaping has proven to be successful in reducing the vibrations of a great variety of linear systems. This article seeks to apply input shaping to robotic manipulators of parallel architecture. Such systems have multiple degrees-of-freedom and non-linear dynamics and therefore standard input shaping techniques cannot be readily applied. In order to apply standard input shaping techniques to such systems, this article linearizes the dynamic equations of the system locally and determines the configuration-dependent natural frequencies and damping ratios throughout its workspace. Techniques are developed to derive the dynamic equations directly in linearized form. The method is demonstrated for a sample manipulator with two degrees-of-freedom. A linearized dynamic model is derived and input shaping is locally tuned according to the linearized dynamic model. Simulation results are provided and discussed.
