Week 12: Soft Robotics

This class focuses on the study of a specific field in robotics, the soft robotics. Soft-robotics are based in Bio-inspired design or biomimicry and have applications in wearables, rehabilitation prosthetics, surgical robots, rescuing and others. The participants explore the fabrication of soft actuators, sensors and grippers using novel materials, artificial muscles and performative locomotion design.
