Short summary
The study provides contributions to motion control systems with friction, especially for micro-motion systems. Five most used friction models in the micro-motion systems were compared. The plausible reasons for the difference in performance among these models applied in micro stick-slip motion were discussed. This study also demonstrates an idea of using displacement measurement of micro motion system and system identification technique to investigate the dynamic friction in micro motion level.
