In order for robots to expand their applicability within manufacturing operations, their dexterity needs to advance considerably. There is active research in many areas that is contributing to creating a new generation of much more dexterous arms and hands. A complementary measurement science research effort, which defines the metrics, artifacts, and test methods, is needed to characterize and understand performance of new capabilities. In this document, a high-level roadmap is proposed for potential long- and short-term work to progress measurement science in the area of dexterous manipulation.
