New hand for Honda's ASIMO

New hand for Honda's ASIMO

Postby Markus Waibel on 21 Oct 2009, 15:09

Japanese car manufacturer Honda is developing a new hydraulic robot hand for its humanoid ASIMO. While a previous update already introduced an opposable thumb, ASIMO's current hand is still restricted to 2 degrees of freedom with the four remaining fingers actuated by a single motor. The new hand features five independent motors for each hand and will use hydraulics, which will allow to move the 5 actuating motors away from the fingers. In addition, the new hand will include pressure sensors at the finger tips and double the maximum amount of force to roughly 10 Newtons.
