Founded in 2017, New Dexterity is a research group affiliated with the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Auckland in Auckland, New Zealand. We are interested in equipping robots with dexterous manipulation capabilities and enabling humans to regain their lost dexterity or augment their performance, modeling, designing and controlling new robotics and bionics hardware.
