An observer for reconstructing the joint velocities of rigid-joint robots is proposed. The approach consists of exploiting the structural properties of the robot dynamics. The associated error dynamics are shown to be asymptotically stable. The observer furnishes the state estimate directly in the physical coordinates, so that no transformation is needed. The stability of some state feedback controllers having the proposed observer inserted in the feedback loop is proved. The structure of the observer and its convergence are shown. The stability of the whole system is analyzed when the observer is used in connection with a point-to-point controller and a trajectory controller
