Robotic prosthetic hand

The goal of this project is to design and construct a robotic prosthetic hand, aiming at helping amputees perform basic every day tasks. The robotic arm should be lightweight and offer a level of dexterity so that the patient can grasp objects of different sizes and shapes. Apropriate modeling and control of the robotic hand should be developed.

The student should be interested in design methodology, and should have some basic knowledge about hardware and electronics. (S)he should be self-motivated and willing to work on a variety of different topics (design, manufacture, implementation) in order to complete the project.
