Abstract

This paper describes the design, development and future activities for the ongoing EU MAST II and III programmes AMADEUS I and II. AMADEUS is a programme of work focused on improving the dexterity and sensory abilities of underwater systems for grasping and manipulation of delicate and other objects. Phase I of the project was completed in May 1996, and has developed a prototype dextrous three fingered underwater dextrous gripper. Phase II is now underway, to deploy the hand from an underwater robot arm, and carry out wet trials with end users. This paper summarize the major achievements obtained within the program.
