This paper describes a high-level control mechanism for a dextrous hand. It overviews a distributed environment for robot control currently under development. A simple flexible set of grasps for a dextrous hand is then suggested and their implementation discussed. Finally the paper speculates about the role the grasp can play in obstacle avoidance and vice-versa.
