The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) defines a capstone design course as an integrating experience that draws together diverse elements of the curriculum and develops student competence by focusing both technical and non-technical skills in solving engineering problems. In a Computer Engineering (CE) curriculum, such integration(More)
Many analytical metrics have been proposed to evaluate the quality of a grasp based on different criteria and principles. To use most of them in practical real applications, some operational parameters need to be determined: maximum and minimum values, normalization ratios, quality thresholds, robustness in front of position errors and, more importantly,(More)
Prosthetic hands have evolved and improved over the years, helping people gaining manipulation capabilities. Having a simulation tool able to obtain quantitative evaluation of the grasp capabilities of such hands could give insights as how to improve the design of hand prostheses or robotic hands by means of obtaining better quality scores. The purpose of(More)
The variety of artificial anthropomorphic hand models available nowadays urges for objective procedures for evaluating their functionality and resemblance to the human hand performance. Several metrics has been proposed to evaluate different aspects of artificial hands. This paper analyzes and compares two different evaluation methodologies, one centered in(More)
