The paper describes an experimental activity concerning the mechanical characterization of soft fingertips for robotic hands, focusing on the effects of the presence of an inner rigid core, as in robotic fingers with an endo-skeletal articulated frame covered by an external layer of soft material. By means of a purposely-designed test equipment, fingertips with differently sized cores have been tested, showing the influence of the thickness of the compliant layer on the resultant fingertip… CONTINUE READING
