Lagrange Dynamic Modeling of a Multi-Fingered Robot Hand in Free Motion Considering the Coupling Dynamics
Multi-fingered robot hands have been one of the major research topics because several robotic systems, including service robots, industrial robots and wheel-type mobile robots require grasping and manipulation of a variety of objects as crucial functionalities. Roughly speaking, there are two different types of robotic behavior: free motion, purpose of this paper and constrained motion that would be published in the near future. In this paper, we address the problem of multi-fingered robot hand’s dynamic modeling which is fundamental in design of model-based controllers for grasping and manipulation tasks. Based on the specified multi-fingered robot hand, a new methodology for deriving an efficient dynamic equation by the Lagrange formulation is presented. This methodology is new in the sense that it considers the coupling dynamics of the system in the identification of the parameters of the dynamic equation. Furthermore the developed dynamic model leads to decoupling dynamic characteristics, by which the control of different parts of the system can be separately simulated. So the new structure of the dynamic model was very useful and effective for the simulation and the diagnostic. Several simulation results proved that the derived dynamic model can predict the motion of the multi-fingered hand in free motion.
