We describe and analyse the behaviour of a light-weight robot arm, the SoftArm robot. It is found that the hysteretic force-position relationship of the arm can be explained from its structure. This knowledge is used in the construction of a neural-network based controller. Experiments show that the network is able to accurately control the robot arm after a training session of only a few minutes.} } @COMMENT{Bibtex file generated on 2018-10-9 with typo3 si_bibtex plugin.
