Abstract
(EN)
A gripping apparatus is provided that includes a sensor, an actuator, a base, and a plurality of fingers extending relative to the base to grip an object that is one of a plurality of object types. A first finger includes a first support surface located a first distance relative to the base and a second support surface located a second distance relative to the base. The first distance is selected based on a first object type, and the second distance is selected based on a second object type. The second finger includes a third support surface located the first distance relative to the base and a fourth support surface located the second distance relative to the base. The first finger opposes the second finger. The actuator is operably coupled to the sensor(s) to effect movement at least one of the fingers to hold an object detected by the sensor.

La présente invention concerne un appareil préhenseur qui comprend un capteur, un actionneur, une base et une pluralité de doigts s'étendant par rapport à la base en vue de saisir un objet qui est d'un type parmi une pluralité de types d'objet. Un premier doigt comprend une première surface de support située à une première distance de la base et une seconde surface de support qui est située à une seconde distance de la base. La première distance est sélectionnée en fonction d'un premier type d'objet et la seconde surface est sélectionnée en fonction d'un second type d'objet. Le second doigt comprend une troisième surface de support située à la seconde distance de la base et une quatrième surface de support située à la seconde distance de la base. Le premier doigt est opposé au second doigt. L'actionneur est fonctionnellement couplé au(x) capteur(s) pour assurer le mouvement d'au moins un des doigts en vue de tenir un objet détecté par le capteur.
