Prev: Robot Dynamics and Control Chapter 5 - Multifingered Hand Kinematics Next: Hand Dynamics and Control

In this chapter, we study the kinematics of a multifingered robot hand grasping an object. Given a description of the fingers and the object, we derive the relationships between finger and object velocities and forces, and study conditions under which a grasp can be used to manipulate an object. In addition to the usual fixed contact case, we also include a complete derivation of the kinematics of grasp when the fingers are allowed to roll or slide along the object.
