—This paper presents Cartesian-space PD control of a hydraulic manipulator. The approach based upon “Virtual spring-damper hypothesis” is composed of virtual spring effects and virtual damper effects in task space. It has been applied to electrically driven robots. This experiment shows the comparison of Cartesian-space control with typical joint-space control in the performance of straight-line motion for the hydraulic manipulator that easily generate movements of manipulator without spending a huge amount of computational cost.
