Physical human-robot interaction (pHRI) aims at taking advantage of the complementary capabilities of robots and humans. One of the key challenges in pHRI is to provide a high-bandwidth human-robot interaction that is safe and intuitive for the human user. To this end, it is proposed in this work to revisit the design of robots in order to provide a low-impedance mechanical interaction. The concept of macro-mini robotic system is used and applied to interactive robotic devices. Also, the design of…
