Abstract

In controlling robot finger joints by providing them with compliance, an active method using information from a strain gauge or other kind of force sensor attached to a power transmission cable has been generally used. It is difficult for this method, however, to achieve an ideal degree of cimpliance for the robot finger joints due to a nonlinear term arising from the hardware. This study proposes a force control method of achieving am ideal degree of compliance for robot finger joints by directly building springs, mechanical elements, into the joints. A single-joint prototype model was fabricated in order to install this mechanism in a robot hand. The single-joint model consists of the main mechanical elements of springs, a spring compliance variation mechanism, damper, and a joint positioning mechanism. This paper describes the effectiveness of the new finger joint control mechanism and the force control method using this mechanism.
