Null Space Controller, Weighted Least Norm, Joint Limit, Singularity, Joint Configuration.
We have presented a methodology for compensating joint configuration by composite weighting in different sub spaces. It augments the weighted least norm solution by weighted residual of the current joint rate and preferred pose rate in null space, so that we can arrive at a solution which is able to handle both joint limits and preferred joint configuration simultaneously satisfying the primary task. The null space controller is formulated in conjunction with the work space controller to achieve the objective. The contribution of null space has been discussed in the formulation in two different situations including joint limits, workspace and near configuration singularities.
