This will be a course on robotic manipulation and in particular on grasping and cooperative manipulation. With this course the students will learn how to control a robot, or a team of robots, to grasp, manipulate and move objects from one place to another. The act of grasping and manipulating an object is the ultimate interface of a robotic system with the environment. It is difficult to think about a robot without any grasping and tool manipulation ability.
The course will cover the Kinematics of the grasping, the hand Jacobian and the Grasping matrix, kineto-statics modeling of the grasp, grasp analysis and control.
