|Project Summary||Project Information|
Soft robots are made up of flexible components that change shape when a medium causes a change in pressure. These robots are advantageous over rigid robots because they can tolerate deformation. This makes them ideal to complete dynamic tasks in various environments.
Previously team members from project P16227 were able to create a soft robotic hand that was able to inflate, grab a tennis ball, and then deflate. The system was able to travel using a base from a remote control car. The success of this limb laid the foundation to move onto additional research and development to create an inflatable walking robot. Eventually the project will combine individual components to create an entire soft inflatable robot.
The end result should yield a functional inflatable walking robot prototype that builds upon previous “air muscle” technology from the robotic hand in P16227. For additional information, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package.
