E. Battaglia, M. G. Catalano, G. Grioli, M. Bianchi, A. Bicchi. “ExoSense: measuring manipulation in a wearable manner”. Submitted to 2017 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA)

Grasp and manipulation is a complex task, deceivingly simple to accomplish for humans in everyday life, yet challenging when it has to be implemented in a robotic hand. There is a trend in literature to use information…
