There is a high demand for developing effective controllers to perform fast and accurate operationsfor either flexible link manipulators (FLMs) or rigid link manipulators (RLMs). Thus, this paper isbeneficial for such vast field, and it is also advantageous and indispensable for researchers who areinterested in robotics to have sufficient knowledge about various controllers of FLMs and RLMs asthe controllers’ concepts are elaborated in detail. The paper concentrates in critically reviewing clas-sical controllers, intelligent controllers, robust controllers, and hybrid controllers for both FLMs andRLMs. The advantages and disadvantages of the aforementioned control methods are summarizedin this paper; it also has a detailed comparison for the controllers in terms of the design difficulty,performance, and the suitability for controlling FLMs or RLMs.
