This paper presents investigations into the development of hybrid control schemes for input tracking and vibration control of a flexible robot manipulator. A constrained planar single-link flexible manipulator is considered and the dynamic model of the system is derived using the assume mode method. To study the effectiveness of the controllers, initially a collocated PD control is developed for control of rigid body motion. This is then extended to incorporate input shaper control schemes for vibration control of the system. The positive and modified specified negative amplitude input shapers are designed based on the properties of the system. Simulation results of the response of the manipulator with the controllers are presented in time and frequency domains. The performances of the hybrid control schemes are examined in terms of level of input tracking capability, vibration reduction, time response specifications and robustness to parameters uncertainty in comparison to the PD control. Finally, a comparative assessment of the amplitude polarities of the input shapers to the system performance is presented and discussed.
