Abstract

Traditional rigid robotic hand manipulator has been used in many field nowadays due to its advantages of large gripping force and stable performance. However, this kind of rigid manipulator is not suitable for gripping fragile objects since it is motorized and force control can be a problem. It is also not suitable to grip object with different shapes since the manipulator is rigid and not compliant. In this study, a novel manipulator with gripping capability is designed and fabricated. The manipulator combines electrostatic adhesion actuation with soft manipulators. The manipulator has high flexibility and can be compliant to different shapes due to the property of the materials. It is very promising to do delicate manipulations in industry field and biomedical field.
