New robotic seizure can unravel thin cables and ropes

Engineers have developed a robotic seizure, which can deftly manipulate thin objects, such as ropes and cables.

People sometimes it is difficult to manage with thin and flexible objects, but for robots before it was an unbearable task. The problem is that when handling the vehicles, a series of gradual movements and additional devices for processing are used. However, researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology decided to create a bilateral robotic seizure, similar to human fingers.

Mechanical fingers are made of soft rubber, equipped with high-resolution tactile sensors and cameras. In the process of manipulating objects, the control system independently finds ends, simulates the grip force, and also determines the necessary pose to hold the cable inside and ensuring its slip.

In the future, such devices will be able to find widespread practical application not only in production, but also in solving domestic issues. However, so far engineers work on the modernization of robochanta and embedded sensors to improve its performance.

Previously, we also reported the development of robotic capture, which can manipulate objects,
