The ability to track a trajectory without significant error is a vital requirement for mobile robots. Numerous methods have been proposed to mitigate tracking error. While these trajectory-tracking methods are efficient for rigid systems, many excite unwanted vibration when applied to flexible systems, leading to tracking error. This paper analyzes a modification of input shaping, which has been primarily used to limit residual vibration for point-to-point motion of flexible systems. Standard input shaping is modified using error-limiting constraints to reduce transient tracking error for the duration of the system’s motion. This method is simulated with trajectory inputs constructed using line segments and Catmull-Rom splines. Error-limiting commands are shown to improve both spatial and temporal tracking performance and can be made robust to modeling errors in natural frequency.
