Each of the manipulator joints usually has a separate drive. Drive forces, as well as torques acting in joints, are distributed through the manipulator links to the end-effector (gripper) on which the environment also exerts a force and torque. The relationship between input (drive) and output (acting on the end-effector) forces and torques constitutes the basis of a control system.
