We present a measure called collidability measure for obstacle avoidance control of redundant manipulators. Considering moving directions of manipulator links, the collidability measure is defined as the inverse of sum of predicted collision distances between links and obstacles. This measure is suitable for obstacle avoidance control since directions of moving links are as important as distances to obstacles. For dynamic redundancy resolution, null space control is utilized to avoid obstacles by minimizing the collidability measure. Also, by clarifying decomposition in the joint acceleration level, we present a simple dynamic control law with bounded joint torques which guarantees tracking of a given end-effector trajectory and improves a kinematic cost function such as collidability measure. Simulation results are presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm
