This talk is based on exploiting the underlying structure of the governing equations of a dynamic system to establish properties such as feedback linearizability or differential flatness. Once these properties are established, trajectory planning and tracking can be solved in a simplified manner. This approach is demonstrated through a number of example robot systems. Furthermore, an approach is presented for design of robotic systems to be differential flat, through inertia redistribution.
