Hi I am working on object Grasping using Schunk SVH hand.

I have the following questions -

  1. Is there any other institution / organization working on a similar project ?
  2. Is there any grasp planning library in ROS ( or C++) available for Schunk SVH Hand ? If not for Schunk hand, then for any other 4/5 fingers hand ?

You might want to checkout the ipa320 repository, they have some Schunk related packages. Also: the ROS Index site returns quite some results for schunk, see here.

at least for simple grasps you can just rely on the internal position/current controller by closing it completely. This produced good results, also for fragile objects. But of course that is not really what you want.

You can take a look at GraspIt! maybe it is helpful for you.

Best Regards Georg
