Active Friction Compensation for Motors
Friction is a natural occurrence that affects almost all objects in motion.
Extensive research attempts to develop models that accurately predict the behavior of friction.
Frictional effects at moderate velocities are somewhat predictable, however the effects of friction at low velocities are difficult to model.
Control strategies attempting to compensate for the friction effects require a suitable model that captures the behavior of friction throughout the entire range of velocity.
We have developed our own testbed to test such control strategies
Below is a picture of our friction compensation testbed
