This project has as a goal to give robots the same dexterity as the human hand. Current efforts have concerned the characterization of the hand's pneumatic actuators and tendon transmission. Research is continuing into finger and grasping force control. Teleoperation of the hand is being pursued with the Utah Dextrous Hand Master.
