Lyapunov observer/controller for stable haptic interaction (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Jafari, A., Singh, H., Karunanayaka, H., Ryu, J. H., Chong, J., & Etoundi, A. (2018). Lyapunov observer/controller for stable haptic interaction. https://doi.org/10.1109/AIM.2018.8452311

© 2018 IEEE. Passivity has been the most common tool to achieve stability in haptic and teleoperation systems; however passivity-based approaches suffer from the conservativism of passivity criteria. Therefore, it is essential to have an approach whi... Read More about Lyapunov observer/controller for stable haptic interaction.
