The project will focus on the development of the dexterity of robotic micro-sensors, a field of excellence in BFC. It will thus make it possible to propose new manipulation principles exploiting controlled adhesion between the finger and the object being manipulated.

With regard to dextrous microgrippers, this project will allow the generation of original planning methods and gripping methods that will increase knowledge in the field of robotics. The use of these methods could be extended beyond micro robotics to gripper robotics in a broader sense.

This project is held by FEMTO-ST (Michael Gauthier and is supported by the Bourgogne Franche-Comté region and the National Research Agency (ANR):
