A grip force and slippage control for robotic object manipulation, based on mechanical friction is presented. This approach allows a load to be held reliably in the robot gripper without application of excessive forces or allowing uncontrolled slippage. It is a simple, robust and low cost solution, and could be used for applications where low cost integrated grip force and slippage control are needed. This solution could be customized to provide reliable grip force and slippage control for light, medium or heavy load holding applications for a variety of different objects.
