This paper presents experimental results developed within the WIRES experiment, whose main objective is the robotized cabling of switchgears. This task is currently executed by human operators; the WIRES Project tackles the development of a suitably designed sensorized end effector for the wire precise manipulation. In particular, the developed gripper with tactile sensors are shown and a procedure for the implementation of the insertion task is presented and discussed. Experimental results are reported both for quality of wire shape reconstruction and success rate of insertion task implementation. View Full-Text
