Paper Abstract

Despite the recent progress in the motion and force control of multiple manipulators, there has been a continuing question about which physical force should be and can be controlled. The frequently used orthogonal decomposition is plagued by a unit inconsistency problem, rendering its physical interpretation difficult if not impossible. This paper introduces a new and intuitively appealing concept of internal force, and shows how its regulation can be handled by the existing approaches.
