Allegro Hand

A robotic hand with four fingers and sixteen independent current-controlled joints intended as a platform for grasp and manipulation research. The Allegro anthropomorphic hand was designed to be lightweight and portable. The hand allows for low-cost dexterous manipulation that can be applied to both research and industry. The hand was developed along with multiple ready-to-use sensorless grasping algorithms capable of handling a variety of object geometries.
