Abstract:

Current atmospheric diving suits and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) have end effectors with simply 1 DOF. This rudimentary manipulation results in excessive time spent working a problem underwater, development of task specific tools that can be operated by the pliers or acceptance that a specific job simply can't be accomplished. Vishwa Robotics proposes a teleoperated, anthropomorphic end effector that mimics the dexterity of a human hand that would provide significant benefit to the underwater industry by expanding the range of operations a diver in an atmospheric suit, or a pilot of an ROV can accomplish.
