Approaches for Learning Human-like Motor Skills which Require Variable Stiffness During Execution

Abstract

Humans employ varying stiffness in everyday life for almost all human motor skills, using both passive and active compliance. Robots have only recently acquired variable passive stiffness actuators and they are not yet mature. Active compliance controllers have existed for a longer time, but the problem of automatic determination of the necessary compliance… (More)
