—Despite the recent progress in physically interactive and surgical robotics, the active deformation of compliant objects remains an open problem. The main obstacle to its implementation comes from the difficulty to identify or estimate the object's deformation model. In this paper, we propose a novel vision-based deformation controller for robot(More)
— In this brief, we address the robust force regulation problem of mechanical systems in physical interaction with compliant environments. The control method that we present is entirely derived under the energy shaping framework. Note that for compliant interactions, standard energy shaping methods (i.e., potential shaping controls using static-state(More)
— Despite the recent progress in physically interactive and surgical robotics, the active deformation of compliant objects remains an open problem. The main obstacle comes from the difficulty to identify/estimate the object's deformation properties. This paper presents a new visually servoed deformation controller for unknown elastic objects. The control(More)
— In this paper, we address the global exponential stability problem of perturbed mechanical systems in free-motion and interacting with passive environments. Particularly, we are interested in incorporating an exponentially stable response to a robust passivity-based control design. We formulate and analyse the stability of the proposed controllers based(More)
