The aim of this project is to develop the next generations of advanced robot hands that are superior to human hands. The results of this project are : (1)an ultra-redundant-DOF robot hand, (2)dexterity of a robot hand by adding revolute joints to its fingertips,(3)a teaching algorithm for multifingered hands, (4)dynamic manipulation of flexible objects, (5)handling of a sheet of paper based on its physical model, (6)ball-juggling, (7)an online visual and tactile information fusion algorithm, (8)control of multifingered hands for master-slave systems,(9)an air-hockey robot, (10)visual servoing of a zoom-focus mechanism, and (11)an estimation of the pose of a robot hand based on visual information.
