The open access repository for sharing data, tools and analyses about human and robotic hands.

An Open Repository

The interest about human hand has gained an increasing attention in the last decades and the ‘’hand’’ research community has incredibly grown up to involve different groups, ranging from neuroscience to robotics. The Hand Corpus is an open access repository for sharing and retrieving human and robot hand data. It was originally created within the European Project The Hand Embodied, with the objective of making data collections and analyses about human hand publicly available, and now it is sponsored and supported by many other important European Projects and international research groups.

The Hand Corpus is supported by the:
IEEE RAS Technical Committee on Robot Hand Grasping and Manipulation
