Position control for robot manipulator may not suffice when any contacts are made between the end-effector and various environments. Therefore interaction forces must be controlled in tasks performed by robot manipulator. In general, there are two types of force control for robot manipulator. One is a stiffness control and the other is a hybrid position/force control. Stiffness control is that environment can be modeled as a spring and utilizes the desired normal force to determine the desired normal position. Hybrid position/force control, however, can be used for robot manipulator to track position and force trajectories simultaneously. This paper will compare the result of the hybrid position/force control method with that of the stiffness control method.
