Abstract
This paper reports an experimental activity for the validation of a robotic gripper for space applications. A key point of this gripper, besides the compatibility with the carrying arm (in this case the SPIDER manipulator developed by ASI) and some other mechanical features, is its capability to deal with free-flying objects in no-gravity conditions. This capability is achieved because of the sensorial equipment and the implementation of proper control strategies. After a brief illustration on the main features of the gripper, the experimental activity is presented and the results discussed.
