New robot design offers better object handling than before [News]
posted June 14 2012 18:10.46 by Giorgos Lazaridis




Born in Japan, this new design is quite promising for the future of the robotic arms. Up until now, robotic hands used multiple actuators and pressure sensors to move their fingers. A lot of programming practice and experience was required to achieve proper gripping of complex items.

This very new design has all fingers connected to a single cooperative structure which automatically adjusts to provide at uniformly grip. The D-Hand (as it is called) mimics the bone structure of the human body to provide uniform grip pressure without using multiple pressure sensors, even for complex and irregular items. Additionally to that, it has even lower cost due to the limited actuators it uses.

DOUBLE Research&Development believe that the D-hand will be widely used in the food production, assembly lines, rescue bots etc...
