The scientific goal of HANDS.DVI (Hands DeVice-Independent language) consists of developing a common framework to program robotic hands
independently from their kinematics, mechanical construction, and sensor equipment complexity. Recent results on the organization of the
human hand in grasping and manipulation, known in the literature as synergies, are the inspiration for this project.  This synergistic
organization is the theoretical foundation of the innovative approach to design a unified framework for robotic hands control
