Allegro Hand Overview Revision as of 19:50, 3 October 2012 by Alexalspach
|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)
- Allegro Application Studio integration allows for simulation based algorithm prototyping without ever changing your code
- Support for real-time control and online simulation
|Number of Fingers||Three (3) fingers and a thumb|
|Degrees of Freedom||4 fingers x 4 = 16|
|Payload||0.5 (kg) for each finger, 1.5 (kg) total|
|CPU||Intel® Core™2 Duo or higher|
|RAM||at least 2GB|
|HDD||at least 2GB|
|Graphics|| OpenGL 3.0 H/W Acceleration enabled|
with at least 64Mb of video RAM
|OS|| MS Windows® XP,|
MS Windows® Vista,
MS Windows® 7
|Additional S/W||MS Visual Studio®|
|CAN Interface|| NI, Softing, Kvaser or ESD CAN|
Note: Any CAN interface can be user-configured
for use with the Allegro Hand.
A pre-reconfigured CAN interface can be purchased along with the Allegro Hand. The CAN interfaces available through SimLab include:
- National Instruments' (NI) USB-8473s High-Speed CAN
- Softing's CAN-AC2-PCI
- Kvaser's PCIcan 4xHS
- ESD's CAN-PCI/266
A hard plastic carrying case can also be purchased for traveling with and storing your Allegro hand.
