Title: Flexible link
Description: The Rotary Flexible Link module consists of a thin stainless steel flexible link with one end free, and a DC motor used to rotate the link from the other end in the horizontal plane. The main control problem is the position control of the tip, supressing or minimizing the vibrations that appear due the the elasticity of the link. The built-in sensors of the module provide the position and velocity of the DC motor, and the deflection of the tip. The control variable is the input voltage of the motor.
