In this work the dynamics of a manipulator arm is analyzed by Maggi’s formulation and by automatic development of the equations of motion. Two control strategies, that is an adaptive and a standard one, are taken into account in order to satisfactory perform pick and place maneuvers. Numerical simulations emphasize performance qualities and limits of the two choices and suggest a possible implementation of mixed control strategies.
