While progress in many fields of robotics has been swift, robot arm movement<br/>in scenarios without contact has changed little in the last decades. This lack of<br/>change is not due a lack of potential for improvement. After all, the human arms<br/>that these robot emulate move in ways that are more robust, energy efficient and<br/>adaptable....

Since the industrial revolution, machines have taken over many tasks from humans, increasing labor productivity and prosperity. In the 20th century, the introduction of robots created a second wave of automation, increasing the labor productivity even further. In order to create a third wave of automation, it is necessary to develop a new...
