Robotnik developed a new ROS package for the Barrett Hand BH8-28X which allows the control of the hand either in velocity or position, while reading the current state of the joints and the sensors (fingertip torque and tactile sensors). Moreover, the software includes packages with the model description and a graphical interface to interact with the hand.

If you are interested in verifying all these features of the hand, you can visit us from 14th until 18th of September in booth nº303 at IROS 2014.
