Ball Control in High-speed Batting Motion


Speeding up of robot motion provides not only improvement of operating efficiency but also dexterous manipulation taking advantage of unstable state or non-contact state. We propose a hybrid trajectory generator in order to produce high-speed manipulation. This algorithm consists of both mechanical high-speed motion and sensor-based reactive motion. As an example of high-speed manipulation, a robotic ball control in batting task has been realized.
