Features

caption

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

Product

AllegroLogo.jpg

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 without any changes to the code.

For more information, please visit our Allegro Application Studio website.
