On Grasp Quality Measures: Grasp Robustness and Contact Force Distribution in Underactuated and Compliant Robotic Hands

Maria Pozzi, Monica Malvezzi, Domenico Prattichizzo
2017 IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters  
They both consider main grasp properties: contact points, friction coefficient, etc., but also hand degrees of freedom and consequently the directions of controllable contact forces.  ...  The availability of grasp quality measures is fundamental for grasp planning and control, and also to drive designers in the definition and optimization of robotic hands.  ...  The above cited papers are mainly focused on the hand's structure and actuation system, and do not account for other grasping properties such as friction, and contact force limits.  ...

Quantitative Safety Guarantees for Physical Human-Robot Interaction

Jochen Heinzmann, Alexander Zelinsky
2003 The international journal of robotics research  
In this paper we describe the formulation and implementation of a control strategy for robot manipulators which provides quantitative safety guarantees for the user of assistant-type robots.  ...  Such accidental collisions may occur with any part of the robot and therefore the impact force not only of the robot's hand but of all surfaces is controlled by the scheme.  ...  The object is then grasped and the success of the object grasping operation can be determined from the positions of the finger at the end of their closing.  ...
