A finger mechanism for adaptive end effectors
This paper presents the design and analysis of a rigid link finger, which may be suitable for a number of adaptive end effectors. The design has evolved form an industrial need for a tele-operated system to be used in the nuclear environment. The end effector is designed to assist repair work in nuclear reactors during retrieval operations, particulary for grasping objects of various shape, size and mass. The work is based on the University of Southampton's Whole Arm Manipulator, which has some special design considerations for safety and flexibility. The paper discusses kinematic issues associated with finger design, and to the end of the paper specifies the limits of finger operating parameters for implementing control laws.

Abstract

This paper presents the design and analysis of a rigid link finger, which may be suitable for a number of adaptive end effectors. The design has evolved form an industrial need for a tele-operated system to be used in the nuclear environment. The end effector is designed to assist repair work in nuclear reactors during retrieval operations, particulary for grasping objects of various shape, size and mass. The work is based on the University of Southampton's Whole Arm Manipulator, which has some special design considerations for safety and flexibility. The paper discusses kinematic issues associated with finger design, and to the end of the paper specifies the limits of finger operating parameters for implementing control laws.
