When robots interact directly with humans, safety becomes a major consideration. The purpose of this study is to realize a safe humanlike robot hand for a human-friendly robot. The structure of the soft hand is described, its basic operation shown, and wipe motion for a human arm using this hand examined. Finally, a method of force communication task is proposed, which controls mutual communication based on the operating force between a robot and a human. This method is applied to their shaking hands.
