Abstract

The study of human–machine interaction as a unique control system was one of the first research interests in the engineering field, with almost a century having passed since the first works appeared in this area. At the same time, it is a crucial aspect of the most recent technological develop-ments made in application fields such as collaborative robotics and artificial intelligence. Learning the processes and dynamics underlying human control strategies when interacting with controlled elements or objects of a different nature has been the subject of research in neuroscience, aerospace, robotics, and artificial intelligence. The cross-domain nature of this field of study can cause difficulties in finding a guiding line that links motor control theory, modelling approaches in physiological control systems, and identifying human–machine general control models in manipulative tasks. The discussed models have varying levels of complexity, from the first quasi-linear model in the frequency domain to the successive optimal control model. These models include detailed descriptions of physiologic subsystems and biomechanics. The motivation behind this work is to provide a complete view of the linear models that could be easily handled both in the time domain and in the frequency domain by using a well-established methodology in the classical linear systems and control theory.
