artifact description
The goal of this project is to develop a multi-fingered robotics hand that is capable of dexterous manipulation at a low cost that is easy to replicate and study. The robotics hand will be used in TRINA system to perform nursing task such as grasping and manipulating deformable objects. A simple and intuitive controlling method for the robot hand is also studied and developed. The robot hand can be controlled using multiple user inputs such as command lines, scripting, GUI and data glove. The software required for the robotics hand and the controlling method will both be available and supported on Ubuntu operating system running the Robotics Operating System (ROS).
