AbstractAn antagonistic actuation with variable stiffness is proposed for ensuring safety and performance in human friendly robotic applications. Various arrangements are analysed with respect to performance, safety and dependability. The results are expected to provide useful guidelines for choosing an actuation mechanism and its implementation for human-robot interactive applications.
