Developmental robotics is concerned with the design of algorithms that promote robot adaptation and learning through qualitative growth of behaviour and increasing levels of competence. This paper uses ideas and inspiration from psychological knowledge of pre-grasping infants (up to 3 months of age) to examine the issues and factors that might produce similar mechanisms for use in robotic systems. The study includes discussion of results from robotic experiments on sensory-motor models and key issues are raised throughout.
