This paper investigates the possibility of implementing force-feedback controllers using measurement of interaction force obtained through force-sensing resistors (FSRs), to improve performance of human interacting robots. A custom sensorized handle was developed, with the capability of simultaneously measuring grip force and interaction force during robot-aided rehabilitation therapy. Experiments are performed in order to assess the suitability of FSRs to implement force-feedback interaction controllers. In the force-feedback control condition, the applied force for constant speed motion of a linear 1DOF haptic interface is reduced 6.1 times compared to the uncontrolled condition, thus demonstrating the possibility of improving transparency through force-feedback via FSRs.
