The paper presents a control scheme for simultaneous control of position and force of robot manipulator in contact with an elastodynamic environment. The control makes the assumption that interaction force between the robot and environment is adequately modeled by a second-order linear model with constant coefficients, and its implementation requires the knowledge of only boundary values of the environment parameters. It is shown that, provided that robot dynamics is exactly modeled, the scheme ensures asymptotic convergence of errors along nominal trajectories characterized by constant prescribed interaction forces and constant prescribed velocities along the contact surface.
