AbstractIn this work, we present a new control method for compliant mechanisms based on deep learning models that achieve 100 nm precision in multiple axes with low-lost strain sensor arrays. In our setup, the strain sensor array is applied to the flexing components on a custom-designed compliant six-axis nanopositioner such that it simultaneously measures the mechanical strain (i.e., displacement) and mode shapes for real-time control, i.e., the deep model can learn, predict, and control the motion of the nanopositioner as a time sequence or 2-D images. During the training stage, capacitance sensors are used as references to minimize position errors; the number and location of sensor arrays can be optimized via the deep learning model. In the experiments, we demonstrate that the deep model developed based on the reinforcement learning method [1] can fully replace the classical PID control, realizing 100 nm precision without tuning any control parameters.
