High-Speed Ring Insertion by Dynamic Observable Contact Hand

Summary

As an application example of "Lightweight High-Speed Multifingered Hand System" which we are developing in this laboratory, we realize high-speed ring insertion into a shaft part. The clearance between parts is 0 to 36 micro-meters (extremely small). Insertion time of a human is 2.58s. On the other hand, our system archived insertion time 2.42s by using new insertion strategy "Dynamic Observable Contact (DOC) hand". In order to reduce the impact force at insertion and correct the position error between the parts, 1ms joint stiffness control of the hand and arm tip speed control are executed simultaneously. DOC hand enables that “6-DOF dynamic passivity”: The grasp system should exhibit passivity with respect to the impact in any direction and “2 Object-pose observability”: The position and orientation of the grasping object should be observed in the grasp system.

This work was conducted by a joint research project between Ishikawa Senoo Laboratory and OMRON co., ltd.
