We propose a method for motion control of a redundant manipulator on a flexible base. Manipulator selfmotion is determined from a velocity-level additional constraint obtained from base vibration dynamics. End-effector path tracking is ensured via pseudoinverse-based velocity control. In this way, algorithmic singularities associated with the additional constraint are avoided. The vibration suppression control component is derived via the Singularity-Consistent method, which aleviates destabilization during vibration suppression in the vicinity of kinematic singularities. Experimental data from a 3R planar manipulator on a flexible base confirmed the feasibility of the proposed method.
