.... Apart from deployability, a self-forcing mechanism, i.e., the holding force increases with load/object weight, facilitates the braided tube as a robotic gripper to grasp objects with different shapes, weights, and rigidities. First, taking a cylindrical object as an example, the self-forcing mechanism...

... link mechanism called a “microgripper.” The fingertip thus is a rigid/fluid hybrid system. The fluid fingertip is effective for grasping delicate objects, that is, it can decrease the impulsive force upon contact, and absorb uncertainties in object shapes and contact force. However, it can only apply...
