[Abstract]: The supporting legs of legged robots form part of
multiple closed kinematic chains in which antagonistic forces can
pose a problem. In this paper, methods of compliance and force
control are explored to resolve this. A ‘nested loop’ topology of
non-linear control for pneumatic cylinders is outlined and its
performance in actual implementation is reported.
