Abstract

Research towards more energy-efficient actuators is of main concern in robotics. The plus Series-Parallel Elastic Actuator (+SPEA), which is a redundant compliant actuator using brakes, was designed to benefit both from parallel and series elasticity.
This actuator can achieve additional objectives, other than performing a given task, such as minimum energy consumption. This paper will give an overview of the potential of the actuator.
