We have proposed discrete time-control methods using the transpose of the generalized Jacobian matrix (GJM) for free-floating space robots having manipulators. The control methods are robust for singular configurations of robots. Since the methods belong to a class of constant-value control, in this article we propose a digital trajectory tracking control method using the transpose of the GJM. Computer simulations show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
