Paper Abstract

Presented first is a novel design for a class of multi-fingered robotic grabbers capable of rapidly deploying their robotic fingers to grab moving objects within their workspace. A simple mathematical model is then presented for computer-graphic simulation of such multi-fingered robotic grabbers. Finally, some experimental results pertaining to dynamic perfomance and control of a number of robotic grabbers fabricated in our laboratory are presented. The dynamic performance of these types of rapidly deployable multi-fingered robotic grabbers have been observed to be quite remarkable and consistent with the proposed computer simulation model.
