Research Topic on Hands in the Real World
Frontiers in Robotics and AI
This collection seeks to give a clear view on the recent trends in soft underactuated hands and their applications. It aims to support and propose concrete actions to improve hand design and behavior and bridge the gap between academia and application in the field. The research topic will collect the results of IROS 2018 workshop "Hands in the Real World: Connecting End-Effector Design, Sensitivity, and Behavior" and it is open to other relevant spontaneous contributions.
A Research Topic works as a Journal Special Issue, therefore it welcomes contributions in the form of Original Research, Reviews, Methods, Perspectives, and Hypothesis and Theory article types.
This collection looks to include contributions on the following themes:
* Real world applications of artificial hands
* Dexterous Manipulation
* Novel soft robotic hand design
* Novel sensing and control strategies
* Benchmarking and performance analysis
November 2018 - Call announcement
16 Mar. 2019 - Manuscript submission deadline
Please note that the revision process will start immediately after the manuscript submission, therefore accepted papers may appear online also before the submission deadline.
Authors interested in contributing to this special issue are advised to submit their papers via the dedicated submission site:
Francesca Negrello, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia
Hannah Stuart, University of California at Berkeley
Manuel Giuseppe Catalano, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia
