This paper addresses the problem of generating at the control-loop level a collision-free trajectory for a redundant manipulator operating in dynamic environments which include moving obstacles. The task of the robot is to follow, by the end-effector, a prescribed geometric path given in the work space. The control constraints resulting from the physical abilities of robot actuators are also taken into account during the robot movement. Provided that a solution to the aforementioned robot task exists, the Lyapunov stability theory is used to derive the control scheme. The numerical simulation results for a planar manipulator whose end-effector follows a prescribed geometric path, given in both an obstacle-free work space and a work space including the moving obstacles, illustrate the trajectory performance of the proposed control scheme.
