ROBOT HANDS AND MULTI-FINGERED HAPTIC INTERFACES: FUNDAMENTALS AND APPLICATIONS
This work discusses the design of robot hands; contact models at grasping; kinematic models of constraint; dynamic models of the multi-fingered hand; the stability theorem of non-linear control systems; robot hand control; design and control of multi-fingered haptic interfaces; application systems using multi-fingered haptic interfaces; and telecontrol of robot hands using a multi-fingered haptic interface.
Robot Hands and Multi-Fingered Haptic Interfaces is intended mainly for readers who have a foundation in basic robot arm engineering. To understand robot hand manipulation, readers must study kinematic constraint models of fingers, hand dynamics with constraints, stability theorems of non-linear control, and multi-fingered hand control — this book will benefit readers' understanding of this full range of issues regarding robot hand manipulation.
Readership: Academic and Professional, Researchers, Graduate and Post-Graduate Engineering students specializing in robotics.
