This paper proposes a new strategy for making knots with a high-speed multifingered robot hand having tactile sensors. The strategy is divided into three skills: loop production, rope permutation, and rope pulling. Through these three skills, a knot can be made with a single multifingered robot hand. The dynamics of the rope permutation are analyzed in order to improve the success rate, and an effective tactile feedback control method is proposed based on the analysis. Finally, experimental results are shown.
