Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to contribute to  the Research Topic: "Hands in the Real World" in 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.

Contributions in the form of Original Research, Reviews, Methods, Perspectives, and Hypothesis and Theory article types are welcome.

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
* Haptics
* Benchmarking and performance analysis

Important Dates:

15 Apr. 2019 - Extended deadline (Hard deadline)


Authors interested in contributing to this special issue are advised to submit their papers via the dedicated submission site:
