|Title:||FLUIDIC ROBOTIC ACTUATOR SYSTEM AND METHOD|
A fluidic robotic actuator configured to assume at least a neutral position, the fluidic robotic actuator includes a first and second plate defining respective planar portions that are disposed in parallel planes in the neutral position. The fluidic robotic actuator also includes a plurality of elongated bellows extending between the first and second plates, the bellows each having a central main axis that is parallel to the central main axis of the other bellows in the neutral position, the main axis of the bellows being perpendicular to the parallel planes of the first and second plates in the neutral position, the bellows being coupled to the first and second plates at respective first and second ends of the bellows.
