Caption

BabyBot robot hand grasping a ball, time exposure image. The BabyBot is a humanoid robot that has been developed at the LIRA-Lab at the University of Genoa, in Italy. The BabyBot project, started in 1996, is investigating sensory and control systems, how they interact, and what this can tell us about human brains and how they develop. The hand has five fingers, fifteen joints, and six degrees of freedom. It also has tactile sensors that react by producing a 'grasp reflex'. Touching one of these sensors makes the hand close in a grasp, as seen here. Work on grasping with the BabyBot hand was carried out from May 2004. It can also visually identify and pick up objects, like those seen on the table.
