  • Abstract

    The performance of robot arm motion generated via neural network are presented in this paper. The robot arm motion for obstacle avoidance simultaneously optimizing three functions; minimum distance, minimum time and minimum energy are generated. Four different initial and goal position had been chosen to test and analyze the performance of generated neural controller. The same neural controllers can be employed to a different range of initial and goal position. The motion generated yield good results in the simulator. In this research a new approach for intelligent robot arm path and motion generation are successfully implemented.
