Underactuated and synergy-driven hands are gaining attention in the grasping community mainly due to their simple kinematics, intrinsic compliance and versatility for grasping objects even in non structured scenarios. The evaluation of the grasping capabilities of such hands is a challenging task. This paper revisits some traditional quality measures(More)

The availability of grasp quality measures is fundamental for grasp planning and control, and also to drive designers in the definition and optimization of robotic hands. This work investigates on grasp robustness and quality indexes that can be applied to power grasps with underactuated and compliant hands. When dealing with such types of hands, there is(More)
