This paper presents a robust adaptive fuzzy neural controller (AFNC) suitable for motion control of multilink robot manipulators. The proposed controller has the following salient features: (1) self-organizing fuzzy neural structure, i.e., fuzzy control rules can be generated or deleted automatically according to their significance to the control system and the complexity of the mapped system and no predefined fuzzy rules are required; (2) fast online learning ability, i.e., no prescribed training models are needed for online learning and weights of the fuzzy neural controller are modified without any iterations; (3) fast convergence of tracking errors, i.e., manipulator joints can track the desired trajectories very quickly; (4) adaptive control, i.e., structure and parameters of the AFNC can be self-adaptive in the presence of disturbances to maintain high control performance; and (5) robust control, where asymptotic stability of the control system is established using the Lyapunov theorem. Experimental evaluation conducted on an industrial selectively compliant assembly robot arm demonstrates that excellent tracking performance can be achieved under time-varying conditions.
