Guiding a mobile robot by the hand would make a simple and natural interface. This requires the ability to sense forces applied on the robot from direct physical contacts, and to translate these forces into motion commands. This paper presents a joint-space impedance control approach that does so by perceiving forces applied on compliant arms, making the(More)
