Robot Hand

This is a few images of my First class undergraduate BSC Robotics degree project.

My inspiration:

The ‘cage scene’ contains actors, human robots and completely animatronic puppets controlled by  rods, hydraulic, pneumatics and completely remote controlled, all operated by 46 puppeteers and technicians.

Aim:

  • To design and construct a robotic arm and hand, capable of lifelike movement
  • Send data from a user data glove, to the robotic arm
  • Servo actuators to control the movement of each finger and thumb separately
  • Make it look lifelike by making a skin from latex.

Outcome:

  • Fully controllable wireless hand
  • Lifelike size – based upon real measurements
  • Good movements
  • Capable of multiple movements though limited to 10 Degree of Freedom at joints
