Designing intrinsically elastic robot systems, making systematic use of their properties in terms of impact decoupling, and exploiting temporary energy storage and release during excitative motions is becoming an important topic in nowadays robot design and control. In this paper we treat two distinct questions that are of primary interest in this context. First, we elaborate an accurate estimation of the maximum contact force during human/obstacle-robot collisions and how the relation between reflected joint stiffness, link inertia, human/obstacle stiffness, and human/obstacle inertia affect it. Overall, our analysis provides a safety oriented methodology for designing passively flexible joints and clearly defines how its basic mechanical properties influence the overall collision behavior. Secondly, we provide a closed form solution of reaching maximum link side velocity in minimum time with an intrinsically elastic joint, while keeping the maximum deflection constraint. This gives an analytical tool for determining suitable stiffness and maximum deflection values in order to be able to execute desired optimal excitation trajectories for explosive motions.
