This paper describes a method for limiting vibration in flexible systems by shaping the input to the system. Unlike most previous input shaping strategies, this method does not require a precise system model or lengthy numerical computation; only estimates of the system natural frequency and damping ratio are required. The effectiveness of this method when there are errors in the system model is explored and quantified. Next, an algorithm is presented, which, given an upper bound on acceptable residual vibration amplitude, determines a shaping strategy that is insensitive to errors in the estimate of the natural frequency. Finally, performance predictions are compared to hardware experiments.
