Dexterous Manipulation System for Small Robots
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
RE2 is proposing to build a Dexterous Manipulation System payload that will directly address the inability of most small ground robots to perform fine and/or complex manipulation tasks. The DMS payload combines a highly maneuverable manipulator arm with advanced feedback and intuitive software control methods to provide a complete package that not only increases the base capabilities of platforms it is integrated with, but allows operators to perform complex tasks easily. The DMS manipulator arm is modeled after the human arm and features a high number of Degrees of Freedom. The intuitive control software frees the user from tedious joint-by-joint control methods, allowing the user to move the entire arm in an intuitive manner, and increasing the ease with which complex tasks can be performed. The advanced feedback gives the user the information necessary to perform fine gripping tasks.
