Description

Human Inspired Dexterity in Robotic Manipulation provides up-to-date researchers information on how to imitate humans to realize robotic manipulation.

The approaches from software and hardware viewpoints are shown. From the software viewpoints, how human manipulation techniques or skills can be transferred to the robotic manipulation are provided using actual cases including prosthetic hand control and medical robotic operation. From the hardware viewpoint, the book discusses important human hand structures that are keys for robotic hand design, and how they should be embedded in the robotic hand for dexterous manipulation. Also discussed is control of the robotic hand.

This book deals with how to draw the next keys from a human being, in order to realize dexterous robotic manipulation so is ideal for the research communities in Robotics, Mechatronics, and Automation.

Key Features

  • Investigates current research direction in robotic manipulation
