This research has as objective the study and development of a set of multivariables robust controllers for a robotic manipulator with multiple degrees of freedom. The objectivo of these controllers is to locate with precision the tip of each finger, thus making possible the object manipulation. This system will have to deal with the typical nonlinear characteristics of a complex mecatronic system.
