Hand Synergies: Mapping from human hand to robotic hand

Many robotic researcher propose a novel mapping approach to map a human grasp to a robotic grasp based on human grasp motion trajectories rather than grasp poses, because  human grasp motions usually contain complex and nonlinear patterns in a high-dimensional space. In recent advnces in neuroscience research, the control of the human hand during grasping is dominated by movement in…
