On the Design of a Novel Dexterous Hand

  title={On the Design of a Novel Dexterous Hand},
  author={Wei J Chen and Ming Xie},
This paper addresses the design and development of a single-motor-driven dexterous hand. The hand possesses the following characteristics: (1) single electric actuator mechanism for multi-DOF’s through the use of clutches, (2) modular structure to support reconfigurability, and (3) cable-driven system to allow remote location of the actuator. Due to these features, the hand is able to provide a wide range of ability for various grasping and manipulation. In addition, the paper also conducts the… CONTINUE READING
