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 ( 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:
