Soft robotics methods such as impedance control and reflexive collision handling have proven to be a valuable tool to robots acting in partially unknown and potentially unstructured environments. Mainly, the schemes were developed with focus on classical electromechanically driven, torque controlled robots. There, joint friction, mostly coming from high(More)
This letter presents a novel joint torque-based impedance controller for antagonistically driven flexible joints actuated by pneumatic cylinders and compares it with the current state of the art. The work targets on transferring soft-robotics control concepts from classical motor-gear-torque sensor setups to pneumatic systems, with the goal of achieving(More)
