Need a CAN communication interface?
WONIK ROBOTICS offers support for five CAN communication interfaces out-of-the-box.
For CAN product comparison, documentation and drivers, please visit out CAN Options page.
Developing your own algorithms?
If you plan to develop your own algorithms for the Allegro Hand, these guides will help you establish communications using CAN protocol. Also, the programming guides will provide you the ability to create your own algorithms using Allegro Hand Application Studio (AHAS) as the front end.

If you are developing software for the allegro hand on a linux-based platform, you will happy to hear that both Allegro Hand versions 1 and 2 are supported in ROS, the open-source Robot Operating System (ROS.org). The ROS stack provides CAN communication, using a PEAK CAN device, as well as basic controllers and a control loop template for quickly implementing your own code. Downloads and installation instructions can be found on the ROS wiki:
You or someone in your lab has recently been emailed a lab-wide username/password to be used when accessing the Allegro Hand information and downloads specific to you. If you have not received this email or you need it to be resent, please email [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Thanks.
