Abstract: 

I will introduce the basics of robotic grasping and what kinds of metrics and measures robotics researchers use to "reason" about grasping. Much of grasping and manipulation can be thought of as a spatial and dynamics temporal problem - characterizing the space between the robot hand and the object, and forces and torques at the point of contact. Although the robotics grasping community has largely focused on the dynamics side, I argue that a spatial approach is more applicable to understanding grasping. I will present two preliminary approaches we have developed in order to characterize this space.
