Systems for high-precision control of the trajectory to be followed by a robot arm grip need to properly model the interaction among the robot arm joints and to cope with the high-speed and nonlinearities of the arm dynamics. To solve this problem the use of a hardware accelerator, which is able to explore parallelism within multivariable self-tuning control algorithms, is proposed. The accelerator works as part of an integrated system which incorporates facilities of computer vision and robot arm trajectory definition. The computer vision sub-system recognizes the position of an object selected to be picked by the robot arm and the trajectory definition sub-system uses a neural network to define the angular position of the joints along the trajectory to be followed by the arm.
