A new class of non-linear learning control laws is introduced for a robot manipulator to track a given trajectory in performing a series of tasks. The learning control scheme is applicable to robots with both resolute and prismatic joints, requires only position and velocity feedback, and removes the acceleration measurement required by the existing results. It has been shown that under the proposed learning control the tracking errors are always guaranteed to be asymptotically stable with respect to the number of trials. The proposed control is robust in the sense that exact knowledge about the non-linear dynamics is not required except for bounding functions on the magnitudes. In addition, the new learning scheme can be used without assumptions such as repeatability of robot motion, repeatability of tasks and resetting of initial tracking errors.
