The inverse kinematics control of a robotic manipulator requires solving non-linear equations having transcendental functions and involving time-consuming calculations. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), which is based on the behaviour of insect swarms and exploits the solution space by taking into account the experience of the single particle as well as that of the entire swarm, is similar to the genetic algorithm (GA) in that it performs a structured randomized search of an unknown parameter space by manipulating a population of parameter estimates to converge on a suitable solution. In this paper, PSO is firstly proposed to optimize feed-forward neural network for manipulator inverse kinematics. Compared with the results of the fast back propagation learning algorithm (FBP), conventional GA genetic algorithm based elitist reservation (EGA), improved GA (IGA) and immune evolutionary computation (IEC), the simulation results verify the particle swarm optimization neural network (PSONN) is effective for manipulator inverse kinematics control.
