Abstract—The research work aims at developing a sensor integrated robotic hand. The broad aim is to design, model, simulate and develop an advanced robotic hand. Sensors for pick up contacts pressure, force, torque, position, surface profile shape using suitable sensing elements in a robot hand are to be introduced. The hand is a complex structure with large number of degrees of freedom and has multiple sensing capabilities apart from the associated sensing assistance from other organs. The present work is envisaged to add multiple sensors to a two-fingered robotic hand having motion capabilities and constraints similar to the human hand. There has been a good amount of research and development in this field during the last two decades. A lot remains to be explored and achieved. 
Index Terms—sensor integration, intelligent robotics hand, parts identification, grasping points
