CERTEC intends to develop an autonomous grasping function, making it easier for physical disabled people to control robots, but first user requirements have to be studied.

Therefore, user trials have been carried out on the RAID workstation (Robot to Assist the Integration of the Disabled) at the Rehabcentrum Lund-Orup in Höör, Sweden, see fig. 1. This paper will describe the control methods used in these trials as well as the results of the trials.
