Achieving adequate force control is an important problem in the application of robotics technology to manufacturing tasks. This is particularly true for assembly tasks that require constrained interaction between a robotic manipulator and a work-part. One approach to this problem is the use of passive compliance. This can be accomplished by realizing a given spatial stiffness or compliance matrix with a connection of simple compliances. Isotropic spatial stiffness matrices can be realized with a parallel connection of simple springs. Similarly, a serial connection of simple compliances can realize an isotropic compliance matrix. However, the family of isotropic stiffness and compliance matrices constitute a very small subset of the family of all stable stiffness/compliance matrices. In this article, we propose a method to realize any positive definite spatial stiffness/compliance matrix using a hybrid connection of simple compliances
