Detailed Design

Currently the team is conducting detailled design in preparation for manufacturing of our bionic hand GRASP. The hand implements an efficient design using linear actuators, force resistance sensors, an STM32 microcontroller, a unique feedback system, all within a lightweight package. The team estimates that manufacturing will start on May, and will be completed in mid July to August, whereafter the team will submit its application to the ARM race at Cybathlon 2020.
