Lifelike Robotic Hand in Development

Dr. Honghai Liu and Professor Xiangyang Zhu were awarded a grant from the Royal Society to create a robotic hand with human-like dexterous capabilities, while using artificial intelligence. This device would be able to work as a normal human hand would. A device like this could be used in many different industries. From surgery, to work on the space station. This hand has limitless applications.

While in development a sensor laden glove is used in conjunction with ccd cameras to record normal fluid hand movements. Robots have not been able to replicate these fine movements just yet. Dr. Honghai Liu and Professor Xiangyang Zhu plan on creating AI software and a mechanical hand to utilize this kind of development.
