Allegro Hand Overview
|Allegro Hand is a low-cost and highly adaptive robotic hand.|
|With four fingers and sixteen independent current-controlled joints,|
it's the perfect platform for grasp and manipulation research.
- Lightweight and portable anthropomorphic design
- Low-cost dexterous manipulation with applications in research and industry
- Multiple ready-to-use sensorless grasping algorithms capable of handling a variety of object geometries
- Capable of holding up to 1.5kg
- 16 independent current-controlled joints (4 fingers x 4 DOF ea.)
- Allegro Application Studio integration allows for simulation based algorithm prototyping without ever changing your code
- Support for real-time control and online simulation

Note: Any CAN interface can be user-configured for use with the Allegro Hand.
The Allegro Hand comes with its own version of SimLab's Allegro Application Studio (AAS), a robotics software for developing and testing control algorithms for a variety of commercial robots. AAS for the Allegro Hand includes a customized kinematics/dynamics simulator based on RoboticsLab. Algorithms developed can be applied to the virtual hand as well as directly to the real hand with and changes to the code.

A hard plastic carrying case can also be purchased for storing and transporting your Allegro hand.
Paired with our RoboticsLab development environment, the user can take full advantage of robust dynamics and system control engines as well as out feature-rich controls SDK. RoboticsLab also enables users to easily model custom robots and test environments in 3D and add built-in and custom sensors, actuators and other dives. RoboticsLab provides the flexibility necessary to prototype and test control algorithms for any system.
SimLab provides the Allegro Hand and RoboticsLab separately. The cost of RoboticsLab is 10,000 USD for academic use (one license). RoboticsLab is a complete robotics research framework that allows the roboticist to model and control robotic system simulations and actual hardware in hard realtime. RoboticsLab provides you with SDKs full of tools for creating advanced but user friendly applications for developing and verifying your system. It also includes a robust and adaptable control SDK to help you focus on your specific application rather than low level controls. Fully integrated, RoboticsLab is the easiest way to get the Allegro Hand up and running with your own controllers and allows the seamless integration of any sensors or robotic arms you may add to the system in the future.
