The problems of deformations occurring in a robot working in contact with the environment can be solved by taking into account forces exerted at the end-effector level. A solution to compensate for these deformations by using a force control scheme is given. The results, which are illustrated in the form of graphs, are obtained from experiments on a real robotic setup built around a PUMA 560 robot.<<ETX>>

Experimental results for a robust position and force controller implemented on a direct drive robot

The results obtained from the implementation of a robust position/force controller on a two-degree-of-freedom direct drive robot guarantees Globally Uniformly Ultimately Bounded (GUUB) position tracking error and bounded force tracking error.

Determination of a reference model for controlling the deformation of an industrial robot. Application to riveting in aeronautics

A force control scheme with explicit force feedback to compensate for deformations of a robot manipulator exerting large forces and moments on its environment is developed, and the desired values are zero except for the force orthogonal to the parts being assembled.
