Conventional Neural Network (NN) control for robots uses radial basis function (RBF) and for n-link robot with online control, the number of nodes and weighting matrix increases exponentially, which requires a number of calculations to be performed within a very short duration of time. This consumes a large amount of computational memory and may subsequently result in system failure. To avoid this problem, this paper proposes an innovative NN robot control using a dimension compressed RBF (DCRBF) for a class of n-degree of freedom (DOF) robot with full-state constraints. The proposed DCRBF NN control scheme can compress the nodes and weighting matrix greatly and provide an output that meets the prescribed tracking performance. Additionally, adaption laws are designed to compensate for the internal and external uncertainties. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed method has been verified by simulations. The results indicate that the proposed method, integral Barrier Lyapunov Functions (iBLF), avoids the existing defects of Barrier Lyapunov Functions (BLF) and prevents the constraint violations.
