Paper Abstract

This paper describes a dynamical strategy for releasing objects picked-up by means of adhesion forces. Indeed, if sticking effects are used in order to capture an object by adequately choosing high surface energy constitutive material for the end-effector, these same effects handicap considerably the release. We propose to take advantage of the inertial effects of the end-effector and the manipulated object to overbalance adhesion forces and to achieve the release. For this purpose, accelerations as high as 105m/s2 are needed. Successful manipulation of a 40micrometers radius glass sphere is presented.
