Thesis

Cartesian Impedance Control in the Frame of the Manipulated Object

This diploma thesis deals with the subject of dexterous robotic manipulation with an anthropomorphic robotic hand (comprising opposing kinematic chains). The goal of any dexterous robotic manipulation task is to achieve a desired pose (position/orientation) for the manipulated object by means of the internal coordinated motion of the robotic fingers within the workspace of the hand, along with achieving absolute control of the internal grasping forces. This work is based on a custom-adapted
