    This paper deals with an investigation of the relative importance of robotic characteristics typically associated with nonlinear manipulators. An IBM 7540 SCARA type of robot is used for simulation, and results are presented for decentralized proportional plus derivative control action applied to individual robot joints, and the use of an adaptive computed torque control strategy is illustrated. The influence of variations in payload and robot parameters on trajectory tracking is also shown.
