Hi Guys,
What're other positioning algorithms than trapezoidal positioning? And what're differences between them?

Hello,

I think you are talking about velocity profiles. Trapezoidal profile is used when you can reach your maximum intended speed. You accelerate in a linear fashion, move at constant speed and then deccelerate. Triangular is the same thing, but when you have a very high programmed speed or a very shot increment of position. In this case you have to begin decceleration before you reach max speed.
Other profiles are used. Second and 3rd order parabolic are the most usefull. Secon order is energy eficient and 3rd order can null acceleration discontinuities, wich is important if you need a very smooth movement.

Best regards

Simply to say
Trapezoidal profile used when a long distance
while Triangular for a short one.
