In this paper, a novel approach for adaptive control of flexible multi-link robots in the joint space is pre-sented. The approach is valid for a class of highly uncertain systems with arbitrary but bounded dimen-sion. The problem of trajectory tracking is solved through developing a stable inversion for robot dynamics using only joint angles measurement; then a linear dynamic compensator is utilised to stabilise the tracking error for the nominal system. Furthermore, a high gain observer is designed to provide an estimate for error dynamics. A linear in parameter neural network based adaptive signal is used to approximate and eliminate the effect of uncertainties due to link flexibilities and vibration modes on tracking performance, where the adaptation rule for the neural network weights is derived based on Lyapunov function. The stability and the ultimate boundedness of the error signals and closed-loop system is demonstrated through the Lyapunov stability theory. Computer simulations of the proposed robust controller are carried to validate on a two-link flexible planar manipulator.
