TL;DR: A survey of the literature related to dynamic analyses of flexible robotic manipulators has been carried out in this article, where both link and joint flexibility are considered in this work and an effort has been made to critically examine the methods used in these analyses, their advantages and shortcomings and possible extension of these methods to be applied to a general class of problems.
TL;DR: The present atlas is a result of the EURON perspective research project “Physical Human–Robot Interaction in anthropic DOMains (PHRIDOM)”, aimed at charting the new territory of pHRI, and constitutes the scientific basis for the ongoing STReP project ‘Physical Human-Robots Interaction: depENDability and Safety (PHRIENDS’.
TL;DR: An overview of the state of the art on impact and contact modelling methodologies, taking into account their different aspects, specifically, the energy loss, the influence of the friction model, solution approaches, the multi-contact problem and the experimental verification is provided.
TL;DR: A review of the literature on the six-degree-of-freedom parallel manipulator commonly known as the Stewart platform can be found in this article, where the authors highlight the distinctions of this class from the conventional serial robot manipulators and the novel perspectives that are necessary for the analysis and design of the Stewart platforms in particular and parallel manipulators in general.
TL;DR: In this paper, the main issues associated with the most common compliant contact force models of this type are analyzed in terms of the dynamic simulations of multibody systems, which allow for the comparison of the similarities and differences among the models considered.
