In this paper, we propose a novel minimum-energy point-to-point (PTP) trajectory planning method for a motor-toggle servomechanism, which is described by the mathematical model of a mechatronic system. To generate the mechatronic trajectory, we employed the real-coded genetic algorithm (RGA) to search for the minimum-energy trajectory for the PTP motion profile, which is described by a polynomial with suitable conditions of position, velocity, and acceleration at the start and end points. The RGA algorithm determines the coefficients of polynomials with the fitness function of minimum-energy input, and is performed in numerical simulations and experiments. The results are compared with those of the S-curve by a traditional proportional-integral control. The proposed methodology can also be applied to any mechatronic system driven by a motor.
