Lucs haptic hand

By 1 - Published 28 August 2010

The robot hands built by Magnus Johnson (with some help from Christian Balkenius). The three hands use different principles to perceive the shape of an object. Hand 1 has only a single degree of freedom and nine touch sensors. Hand 2 has a large number of piezo-electric sensors and seven degrees of freedom. Hand 3 has no sensors on the fingers but uses proprioception to determine when it touches an object.
