The human hand is an extremely complex system abundant in receptors, muscles and articular joints. For this reason, despite significant advances in humanoid robotics in recent years, current artificial hands either have limited functionality or lack adequate practicality and robustness. Aiming at overcoming these constraints, Prof. Bicchi’s team has developed an artificial hand, called SoftHand, unique in its ability to distinguish between heavy and delicate objects. To achieve this result, researchers have worked on making a better hand by making it simpler. [read more]
