    The analysis and experimental verification of a fourth order model of the arm/sensor/environment system plant, to be used in evaluation of force control strategies are presented. Both the undamped and underdamped eases are investigated. Approximations and qualifications, based on the reality of our experimental system, help reduce the solution to just a few dominant terms. Comparing these terms wi... View full abstract»
