This paper presents an experimental study to verify an adaptive dominant type hybrid adaptive and learning controller for acquiring an accurate trajectory tracking of periodic desired trajectory of robot manipulators. The proposed controller is developed based on combining the model-based adaptive control (MBAC), repetitive learning control (RLC) and proportionalderivative (PD) control in which the MBAC input becomes dominant than other inputs. Dominance of adaptive control input gives the advantage that the proposed controller could adjust the feed-forward motion control input immediately after changing the desired motion or load of the manipulator. In motion control law, the proposed controller uses only one vector to estimate the unknown dynamical parameters. It makes the proposed controller as a simpler hybrid adaptive and learning controller which does not need much computational power and also is easily be implemented for real applications of robot manipulators. The proposed controller is verified through experiments on a four-link small robot manipulator as representation of a scale robot manipulator to ensure this controller can be applied in the real applications of robot manipulators. The experimental results show the effectiveness of the proposed controller by indicating the position tracking error approaches to zero.
