Mobile robot to explore narrow space
Soft-matter finger. 3D-printed gel fingertip.
In this exhibition, individual elemental technologies to realize “Soft matter robotics” will be exhibited. These elemental technologies are quite important to create soft matter robots that are softer and safer against human bodies than conventional rigid robots. In particular, we will show prototypes of a therapeutic robot aiming to have a healing effect and a cord-like mobile robot for exploring the inside of narrow pipes.
