The Shadow Dexterous Hand is an advanced humanoid robot hand system that provides 24 movements to reproduce as closely as possible the kinematics and dexterity of the human hand. It has been designed to provide comparable force output and movement precision to the human hand.
WHAT THE MANUFACTURER SAYS:
Shadow Hand systems have been used for research in grasping, manipulation, neural control, brain computer interface, industrial quality control, and hazardous material handling.
The Shadow Dexterous Hand is a self-contained system – all actuation and sensing is built into the hand and forearm.
The Shadow Dexterous Hand development kit includes:
• Control systems
• Software (provided under GNU GPL or BSD as appropriate)
• ROS compliant
• Power supplies
• Tactile sensing
• Auxiliary equipment (if required)
• Documentation and training
All versions of the Hand use an EtherCAT bus (Ethernet for Control Automation Technology), providing a 100Mbps Ethernet-based communications field-bus, and full integration into ROS (Robot Operating System).
