  • Throughout this paper it is presented a novel elastic joint configuration, being compared with other similar joints found in recent literature. It is presented its modeling, being its estimation process developed offline, based on a proposed experimental setup. This setup enables to monitor and collect data from an absolute encoder and a load cell. Some data obtained from these sensors is then graphically represented, like angle and torque, obtaining some parameters. Finally, through an optimization process, where the error of the angle is minimized, the remaining parameters of the joint are estimated, thus obtaining a realistic model of the system.
