Dexterous robot hands with embedded sensorization are available as open-platforms for research.
Five compliant fingers are independently driven by electrical motors, by means of tendon transmission. The thumb ab/adduction actuator is placed within the palm, whereas the fingers flexion/extension motors may be hosted either into a mechanical platform (for portable systems, see picture on the left - standard setup) or onto specific braces to be secured around robot arms (see picture below), based on customer needs.
Current sensors and position sensors are available for bi-directionally interfacing the hand with the robot. Motorized wrist and other degrees of freedom available on request. These hands, host an embedded controller and operate through a simple communication interface (RS232).
ApplicationsResearch in: rehabilitation, humanoid robotics, assistive robotics, neural-machine interfaces and control, sensory substitution systems, neuroscience, etc...
