The development of energy efficient actuation represents one of the biggest challenges in robotics research today. This letter presents the generalisation of design and control concepts for a recently introduced asymmetric compliant actuator, as well as its extension to multi-DoF articulated robotic systems. The actuator design consists of two actuation branches with significantly different stiffness and energy storage capacity properties driving a single joint. The letter studies and presents… Expand
