Abstract:The classic control approach used for industrial robot manipulators implicitly assumes a known, controlled, and predictable environment. However, these assumptions cannot be guaranteed for robots operating in uncertain and dynamic environments. The development of service robots, for in- stance, requires control implementations that allows them to robustly execute tasks under these conditions. In this paper, we introduce an approach for designing a lazy control strategy that provides robustness towards specific changes and uncertainties in dynamic environments which are not considered in the classic control approach. The methodology is applied for a 7-DOF anthropomorphic robotic arm to perform the task of opening a drawer. It exploits knowledge of the task context to design a lazy control strategy and controller that does only as much as it necessary to achieve the task.
