    The development of strategies for near time-optimal motion control of robotic manipulators is discussed. A PUMA 560 three degree-of-freedom industrial robot is used for computer simulation of algorithm. A quintic polynomial describes the trajectory of the robot end-effector traversing a specified path in Cartesian space. It is shown that a significant increase in speed and accuracy of the manipulator can be achieved with the use of the proposed algorithm
