Abstract

The object of our work is to realize passive impedance on the joints of robot fingers by mechanical elements, as leaf springs and brakes, and to develop robot fingers which consists of the new mechanism, which can grasp objects softly. This paper presents a new joint mechanism named 'Mechanical Impedance Adjuster', and an impedance control method of robot finger joint by this mechanism. The effect of this method is shown by the experiment of the 1-D.O.F. finger model.
