PROJECT TITLE :
Dissipative Control for Physical Human–Robot Interaction
Physical human–robot interaction is fundamental to exploiting the capabilities of robots in tasks and environments where robots have limited cognition or comprehension and is virtually ubiquitous for robotic manipulation in highly unstructured environments, as are found in surgery. A important aspect of physical human–robot interaction in these cases is controlling the robot so that the individual human and robot competencies are maximized, while guaranteeing user, task, and environment safety. Dissipative control precludes dangerous forcing of a shared tool by the robot, ensuring safety; but, it usually suffers from poor control fidelity, resulting in reduced task accuracy. During this study, a novel, rigorously formalized, $n$ -dimensional dissipative control strategy is proposed that employs a new technique called “energy redirection” to come up with control forces with increased fidelity whereas remaining dissipative and safe. Experimental validation of the method, for complete pose management, shows that it achieves a ninety% reduction in task error compared with the current cutting-edge in dissipative management for the tested applications. The findings clearly demonstrate that the strategy considerably increases the fidelity and efficacy of dissipative control during physical human–robot interaction. This advancement expands the amount of tasks and environments into that safe physical human–robot interaction will be used effectively.
