The DLR Hand Arm System is a highly dynamic and fully integrated mechatronic system which uses an anthropomor- phic design. It exhibits impressive robustness by using a complete variable stiffness actuation paradigm. It aims at reaching the human archetype in most of its performances and its design. The methodology consists in understanding the human archetype on a functional basis rather than to copy it. However, the design is driven by two antipodal concepts: On one hand, the design has to be simple, robust, and easy to maintain. On the other hand it must be anthropomorphic in shape and size but also, more importantly, in functionality. The paper presents a ﬁnger design that combines a reduced diversity of parts with the need to build ﬁve kinematically different ﬁngers. The ﬁngers are protected against overload by allowing subluxation of the joints. The tendon routing allows for an antagonistic actuation and is optimized to minimize friction and wear. The resulting combination of the link design and the antagonistic actuation is shown to be robust against impacts as well as highly dynamic. They achieve the targeted maximum ﬁngertip force of 30 N in stretched out conﬁguration. The use of antagonistic drives enables to tackle problems of tendon overstretching and slackening that commonly encounter in tendon driven mechanisms. Due to the enhanced capabilities and, inespecial, its robustness, the application developers can focus on the use of innovative grasping and manipulation strategies instead of worrying about the integrity of a costly robotic systems. The possibility of storing energy in the elastic elements of the drive opens new opportunities to perform dynamics based actions (e.g. snapping ﬁngers).
