An Object Exploration Strategy for COM and Mass Determination for Robot Grasping

Abstract—A strategy for object experimentation during robot grasping is presented. Specifically, a method by which object Center of Mass (COM) and mass can be determined using load force/torque sensing is developed. The strategy is tested in simulation and analyzed for robustness to noise and object reconfiguration. Simulation results show that COM can be determined exactly when noise is not present, and to sub-millimeter accuracy with reasonable noise bounds.

Index Terms—object exploration, robot grasping, object property experimentation
