Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR PROVIDING FLEXIBLE ROBOTIC ACTUATORS
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET MÉTHODES FOURNISSANT DES ACTIONNEURS ROBOTIQUES FLEXIBLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Systems and methods for providing flexible robotic actuators are disclosed. Thanks to the concentrical positioning of a plurality of inflatable channels, the claimed soft robot is capable of providing a radial deflection motion. A method for operating the disclosed robotic systems is also disclosed.
(FR)L'invention concerne des systèmes et méthodes fournissant des actionneurs robotiques flexibles. Certains modes de réalisation de l'invention comprennent un robot souple capable de fournir des mouvements de fléchissement radial : un actionneur tentacule souple capable d'effectuer une variété de mouvements et offrant des moyens de transport de différents types de matériaux; et un système robotique hybride qui conserve les caractéristiques souhaitables des robots souples et des robots rigides. Certains modes de réalisation de l'invention comprennent aussi des méthodes d'actionnement des systèmes robotiques de l'invention.
