We synthesize an adaptive motion control law for a free-flying robot with no external forces or moments. The basic idea is to make use of the articulated part of the space robot to control the position and orientation of the end-effector in an inertial frame. The inertia parameters for the robot end-effector and load are assumed to be a priori unknown. The articulated-body model is linear in the unknown parameters, so that an adaptive control law is developed. A novel feature of our approach is that the parameter estimates are obtained using momentum integrals only. In addition, we use unit quaternions to represent orientation errors. The stability properties of the adaptive control law is shown using Lyapunov stability theory. Computer simulations of an example 12 degrees of freedom space robot system are presented
