Paper Abstract

The motion control concerning a free-floating variable geometry truss is discussed. The basic equations for docking control are derived, and to test their validity and explore the practical availability of such a structure in the coming space construction, a docking experiment is carried out. The set-up of experimental apparatus and a VGT model, as well as the control architecture, are illustrated, and various controlled configurations are clearly shown.
