Abstract

This paper considers the dynamics and the prospects for control of a mobile gantry crane as used in the container handling industry. The overall aim of the work is to design and build a trajectory controller involving typical multi-cable lifting gear. Mobile gantry cranes can be considered as very large heavy duty robots, but to-date the implementation of mechatronic methods in this industry has been extremely limited. The research described within this paper is the first, known, funded work in the U.K. which addresses these issues by integrating the whole vehicle dynamics, transducing, and control aspects of this problem.
