Viscoelastic materials are known to exhibit temporal response that changes force or displacement at the contact interface under position or force control, respectively. In this paper, we conduct experimental study using force control to explore and observe creep phenomenon in robotic grasping in order to better understand the nature of such contact interface, which has been widely used in soft robotic fingers, robotic feet, and contact surface of robotic arms. We found that the creep response under a constant external force exhibits the characteristics of exponentially increasing or decreasing temporal response. Such characteristics are similar in nature to those found in the relaxation response of viscoelastic materials when the grasping is under position control. Two different types of creep responses are found, depending on the state of grasping. Both Types I and II in creep response mirror the Types I and II in relaxation response. We also found that different loading rates under force control result in different elastic response, in addition to the temporal response. This is an interesting finding because the Fung's model postulates for an elastic response that is independent of, and can be separated from, the temporal response. The experimental results do not show such independence.
