Between loose pieces (that might move free and then snap tight) and some “digital” elements (that are on-off), some jerky motion will occur. Try to minimize the effect of these components; we’ll look at nonlinear design in a while. Too much overshoot Sometimes a system will move the robot too far and be unable to recover.
