In this paper a controller design method for flexible joint robots (FJR), considering actuator saturation is proposed and its robust stability is thoroughly analyzed. This method consists of a composite control structure, with a PD controller on the fast dynamics and a PID controller on slow dynamics. Moreover, the need of powerful actuator is removed by decreasing the bandwidth of the fast controller during critical occasions, with the use of a supervisory loop. Fuzzy logic is used in the
