Robotic systems can benefit from the introduction of properly chosen joint elasticity. Besides their robustness against rigid impact, the energy saving capabilities may increase the system dynamics. In this paper, a method applicable for robots with serial elastic joints is presented, which embodies a desired oscillatory behavior into the hardware and thereby leads to improved performance. This is achieved by shaping the flexible joint robot as a linear onemode system and embodying the natural frequency of the real intrinsic behavior. An algorithm is presented for shaping the one-mode property and exciting the system via a negative definite damping term in a decoupled coordinate space. The output of the approach is a dynamic trajectory resulting in a coordinated link motion and synchronized transfer of kinetic and potential energy. Furthermore, the dynamic trajectory is commanded to the real robot via a motor PD controller, where asymptotic stability for both subsystems—i.e. the trajectory generator and the controlled robot—is proven. The method is validated on a two-link serial elastic actuated robot. Both, simulation and experiment confirm the eigenmode embodiment, energy efficiency by velocity enlargement between motor and link side motion, and synchronized joint motion.
