This paper presents a grasp execution strategy for grasping an object with one trial when there is uncertainty in the object position. This strategy is based on three grasping components: 1) robust grasp trajectory planning which can cope with reasonable amount of initial object position error, 2) sensor-based grasp adaptation, and 3) compliant characteristics of the under actuated mechanism. This strategy is implemented and tested on the iCub humanoid robot. Two experiments and a demo of the

The results demonstrate that the iCub using this approach can successfully grasp objects under certain position error with its under-actuated anthropomorphic hand.
