Title (EN) AIR-BLADDER ENHANCED WITH GECKO-ADHESIVE FOR GRASPING APPLICATIONS
(FR) VESSIE À AIR AMÉLIORÉE AVEC ADHÉSIF DE TYPE GECKO POUR DES APPLICATIONS DE PRÉHENSION
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides a shear gripper device using fibrillar, gecko-inspired adhesives that have the characteristics of being non-tacky in its default state and requiring no normal force to grip a surface. The adhesion is turned "on" by the applied shear load, and "off as the shear load is removed. The shear adhesive gripper is able to grasp large, deformable or delicate objects using a delicate touch.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif de préhension par cisaillement utilisant des adhésifs fibrillaires, de type gecko qui présentent les caractéristiques d’être non collants dans leur état par défaut et ne nécessitant pas une force normale pour saisir une surface. L’adhérence est "activée" par la charge de cisaillement appliquée, et "désactivée" lorsque la charge de cisaillement est supprimée. Le dispositif de préhension à adhésif par cisaillement est en mesure de saisir des grands objets déformables ou délicats au moyen d’un contact délicat.
