Abstract:This document describes the development phase of the new electric gripper designed and built by the workshop of the department of Artificial Intelligence of the University of Edinburgh. The ideas and the architectural choices made are fully discussed and analyzed. As regards the hardware development, all the solutions to the problems encountered are fully explained. The software development for driving the gripper and the communication between robot and PC and between PC and gripper is then fully described step by step. Conclusions about the future applications of such gripper will be finally examined.
