Report on organized events

Report listing the organized events during the project period

Mapping ECE primitives from human to robotic hands

A set of suitable ECE primitives for the robotic hands involved in the project will be provided. This outcome will be the result of a mapping procedure applied to the set of ECE primitives defined for the human hand in WP1.

Strategy descriptions revised

Revised and extended strategy descriptions at verbal and algorithmic level.

Enhanced Hand Prototypes exploiting ECE

Each partner involved in T2.3 (UNIPI, DLR, TUB, IIT) will present one or more prototypes of hands (developed in T2.2) provided with sensors and/or interfaces under analysis in T2.3.

Soft hands for Intermediate Integration and Testing

Each partner involved in T2.2 (UNIPI, DLR, TUB, IIT) will present one or more prototypes of robotic hands and grippers under analysis in T2.2. Moreover the partners UNIPI and TUB will deliver four prototypes each (2 to OCADO WP5 and 2 to Disney WP6) for the intermediate integration. This Deliverable will be strictly connected with the Milestone MS2, Intermediate Integration.

Data Management Plan

First Version of a Data Management Plan.

Internet presence online

Project website and Youtube channel set up and online

Planner for sequencing ECE primitives

We will provide a planning algorithm that outputs sequences of ECE primitive to achieve robust and reliable grasping.

Reactive planner for sequencing ECE primitives

We will provide a planning algorithm that outputs reactive trees of ECE primitive whose decisions are made during plan execution based on haptic feedback.

Methods for measuring grip stiffness

Methods for continuously measuring grip stiffness at a certain force level are ready. Strategy description and first results.

Computational Design Tool - Unified simulation

We will provide a software tool to simulate the behavior of soft robotic hands and grippers under development in T2.2 according to the model philosophies pursued in T2.1 (hands composed of rigid bodied and lumped elasticities or continuum soft deformable hands).
