Am improved end-effector for one-atmosphere diving suits


This Project will provide an Improved End-Effector (IEE) to replace the simple pincers at present used on one atmosphere diving suits (ADS). By enabling the operator to carry out simple manipulations and operate power hand tools, this will greatly improve the productivity of the ADS, making the latter a realistic and versatile alternative to saturation divers. The IEE will be controlled by the operator's hand in a glove within the ADC and operated by electro-rheological actuators hydraulically linked to the IEE.
