— An adaptive energy-based swing-up controller for simple pendulums is presented. A state transformation from cartesian to polar phase space followed by approximation steps leads to the fundamental dynamics of the controlled simple pendulum. Based on the fundamental dynamics, the unknown natural frequency is estimated and a control gain is adjusted such(More)
— This paper investigates goal-directed cooperative object swinging as a novel physical human-robot interaction scenario. We develop an energy-based control concept, which enables a robot to cooperate with a human in a goal-directed swing-up task. The robot can be assigned to be a leader or an actively contributing follower. We conduct a virtual reality(More)
