Adaptive sliding mode and integral sliding mode grasped object slip prevention controllers are implemented for a prosthetic hand and compared to a proportional derivative shear force feedback slip prevention controller as well as a sliding mode controller without slip prevention capabilities. Slip of grasped objects is detected by band-pass filtering the shear force derivative to amplify high frequency vibrations that occur as the grasped object slides relative to the fingers. The integral sliding mode slip prevention controller provides a robust design framework for slip prevention while addressing the issue of reducing the amount of deformation that the grasped object experiences to prevent slip. Averaged results from bench top experiments show that the integral sliding mode slip prevention controller produces the least amount of deformation to the grasped object while simultaneously preventing the object from being dropped.
