We have developed a golf robot whose swing simulates human motion. The design concept is to realize ultra-high-speed dynamic manipulation using a dexterous mechanism. The robot consists of a shoulder joint with a high-power direct-drive motor and a wrist joint with a low-power direct-drive motor. High-speed golf swings are realized by a sort of motion control, called dynamically-coupled driving which compensates for the lack of drive in the wrist joint. In this paper a new model accounting for golf club flexibility with all parameters identified in experiments was developed. Based on this, we generated and implemented trajectories for different criteria. Experimental results confirmed the high accuracy of motion control and the feasibility of golf club flexibility in ultra-high-speed manipulation.
