This paper presents a dual-loop control scheme based on an integral sliding mode control scheme for the task-space pose error correction in trajectory-tracking of a planar 3-PRP parallel manipulator due to mechanical inaccuracies. The proposed dual-loop control scheme uses redundant sensor feedback, i.e., individual active joint displacements, velocities (at the joint-space level) and, end-effector positions and orientation (at the task-space level) are obtained as feedback signals using appropriate sensors. Using the redundant feedback information, the actual pose errors of the end-effector are computed in the outer-loop (kinematic) control and rectified in joint-space inner-loop (dynamic) control to achieve the given desired task-space trajectory. To demonstrate the efficacy and show complete performance of the controllers, real-time experiments are executed on an in-house fabricated planar 3-PRP parallel manipulator. The experimentation results show that the manipulator tracing performance is considerably improved with the proposed dual-loop control scheme. In addition, the controller parameter sensitivity and robustness analyses are also accomplished. © 2017, Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
