Paper acceptance to MESA2014 conference

By | July 28, 2014

Congratulations to ALARIS group members, their paper was submitted to MESA2014 Conference.

The 10th IEEE/ASME International Conference on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications will be held in Senigallia – Ancona – Italy from September 10th to 12th 2014.

Authors present an open source low-cost basic robotic end effector platform for facilitating research on robotic grasping. The 3D design model of a three fingered underactuated robotic gripper is presented and manufactured with minimal number of 3D printed components and an off-the shelf servomotor actuator. An underactuated finger, gear train mechanisms and an overall gripper assembly design are described in details followed by illustration and discussion of grasping of objects with various geometries. The presented open source gripper design will be released for downloading on the website in Research section and can be useful for robotic researchers as a platform to build their own robotic end effector solutions for research and educational purposes.

The demo of related work is presented in the video below.
