Abstract
A PROPOSAL IS PRESENTED HEREIN TO INTRODUCE A NEW PERSPECTIVE OF MACHINE INTELLIGENCE FOR N-LINK GENERAL PURPOSE MANIPULATORS. THIS INNOVATIVE APPROACH NOT ONLY SOLVES THE INVERSE KINEMATIC PROBLEM (IKP), BUT ALSO PROVIDES A POTENTIAL SELF-CORRECTION MECHANISM TO PERFORM THE ASSIGNED TASK. THE TECHNIQUE WILL BE EXTENDED TO INVESTIGATE THE SPATIAL PLANNING OF MOBILE ARTICULATED VEHICLES AS WELL AS ROBOTIC SYSTEMS WITH DENDRITIC CONFIGURATION. IN ORDER TO DRIVE THESE ADVANCED SYSTEMS, ANINTEGRATED CONTROL DESIGN IS REQUIRED. THE RELATED DYNAMICSMODELING, COMPUTER SIMULATION AND NEW CONTROL LAW DEVELOPMENT WILL BE DISCUSSED AND INITIATED.
