DM-UAV: Dexterous Manipulation Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

Alberto Torres

Abstract

This paper describes a novel aerial manipulation system, a DM-UAV which is composed of a drone with a robotic hand. The main objective is to grasp a target object with the robotic hand. We assume that the object position is known so the drone flies to this position and lands, then the robotic hand can grasp the target object. After of that, the drone can take off in order to transport the object to other location. This system can be very useful for different field applications, f.e. agriculture, to clean the trash on the field, to eliminate contaminating objects, etc.
