Title: Controlling Robotics Arm Using PID
Author(s): Daniel Constantin   Marin Lupoae            

Abstract: The PID control can be utilized in robotics for trajectory tracking as well as set-point regulation. This paper presents a basic example of PID control applied to a robotic arm with one DOF. Also this paper develops a comparative study on the use of different controllers: proportional (P), proportional-integral (PI) and proportional-integral-derivative (PID). The results of computer numerical simulations are shown in order to determine the advantages and disadvantages of each type of controller.

Keywords: PID, robotics control, LSPB
