Soft Actuators with Stiffness and Shape Modulation
Executive SummaryAccurate and stable robotic systems have traditionally been constructed using rigid materials. However, soft and deformable structures have seen growing interest and application in recent years because they tend to outperform rigid systems. Soft robotics is a subfield that utilizes soft and deformable features, similar to ones found...
Gliding Robotic Fish Navigation and Propulsion
Executive SummaryAutonomous robots provide a means to remotely perform a wide variety of tasks. For underwater robots an energetically passive mode of movement is important as well as a platform capable of a variety of sensors. We have developed a bio-inspired robotic vehicle based on the body of ray-finned fish. The robot has a reconfigurable sensor...
Novel Electroactive Polymer-based Flow Sensors for Automotive Systems
Description of TechnologyMichigan State University’s sensing technology enables potential commercial applications in a broad range of industrial applications where information is needed on a combination of fluid/gas flow rates (e.g., in a line), along with the real-time density/viscosity variation of those fluids or gases. The invention uses electroactive...
