It is well known that the use of multi-rate control techniques have improved the performance of many systems in general, and robotic systems, in particular. The main contribution of this paper is the generalization of the Reference Filtering control strategy from a dual-rate point of view, improving its inherent properties by overcoming the problem of sensor latency. In the paper, we discuss and analyze the improvements introduced by the novel dual-rate reference filtering control strategy in terms of convergence time, reachability and robustness. More specifically, we discuss the capability to solve positioning tasks, when hardware limitations are present with large sampling rates. In addition, a comparison is made between the single-rate and the proposed dual-rate control strategies to prove the advantages of the latter approach. A complete set-up has been prepared for validation, including a six degree of freedom (DOF) industrial manipulator, a smart camera and embedded hardware used as a high level controller.
