The design focused on a hybrid approach of combining intrinsic and extrinsic actuators while maintaining the biomimetic dimensions of the human hand. The DASH hand has 16 degrees of freedom including three abduction motors located inside the palm. Each finger has spring steel that acts as the return force for all the tendon-driven actuators in the forearm. Robust positional feedback at the actuated joints was achieved with bend sensors in each finger mid-section to add another level of joint accuracy for closed loop feedback. All of this is controlled by a microcontroller located in the palm. This hybrid actuation robotic hand offers a versatile and low cost solution that is attractive for applications requiring dexterous manipulation. The use of off the shelf servo motors, microcontrollers and 3D printing technology allows the DASH hand to accomplish high DOF manipulation at a an order of magnitude lower price compared to the products currently on the market.
