A Bistable Underactuated Finger with Reconfigurable Grasping Modes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper presents a bistable finger design for grasping, with the bistability property lending itself to reconfiguration from a preferred pinch grasp to a preferred power (enveloping) grasp. This allows selective triggering of the transition between these two grasp types to prevent loss of stable grasp. Design, analysis, simulation, and prototyping of the grasping mechanism are presented.
