Abstract: Handling of objects with irregular shapes and that of flexible/soft objects by ordinary robot grippers is difficult. It is required that various objects with different shapes or sizes could be grasped and manipulated by one robot hand mechanism for the sake of factory automation and labour saving. Dexterous grippers will be the appropriate solution to such problems. Corresponding to such needs, we have developed an articulated mechanical hand with five fingers and 25 degrees-of-freedom which has an improved grasp capability. Since the developed hand is possible to envelope and grasp an object mechanically, it can be used easily and widely in the factory and for medical rehabilitation purpose. This work presents the conceptual design and the kinematic analysis of such a hand.
