Natural and Remote Prehension: Kinematic Studies of Coordination

  title={Natural and Remote Prehension: Kinematic Studies of Coordination},
  author={Bin Zheng},
This thesis presents three experiments to investigate the planning and control of remote prehension. Experiment 1 examined the role of visual information of the tool in planning of remote grasping. Results showed that the lack of visual feedback about the tool reduced the matching accuracy when using a grasper compared to using the hand directly. The grasper used in Experiment 1 had a movable hinge, producing two different length ratios. However, the length ratio did not affect kinematics and… CONTINUE READING
