So be very careful that your robot has a solid construction and as few resonant mechanical elements as possible. It is much easier to control the position of a one-pound block of steel than it would be to control a one-pound bowl of jello. If the coefficient of friction varies with position, similar problems could occur. We have to clearly identify all the frictional elements at work within our robot system.
