We hereby would like to invite you on Monday, September 16th, 2019 at 11:30 am in room 0.009 PWR5a to the talk of Sivakumar Kandasamy, a PhD student of the IRTG on Soft Tissue Robotics project from Auckland (New Zealand), on

A varying angle fiber-reinforced elastomer as a soft pneumatic bending actuator.

Soft actuators are inherently compliant and highly dexterous that are progressively replacing traditional electromechanical actuators in a wide range of robotic applications that involves close interaction with humans. His research aims to demonstrate the bending characteristics, and the force response achieved by a soft pneumatic actuator made from two different techniques, namely continuous fiber reinforcement technique (CFR) and split fiber reinforce technique (SFR). The bending capability and compliance of these varying angle fiber reinforced elastomer-based soft pneumatic actuators show high potential for implementation in human-centric body powered robotic actuation tasks for rehabilitation and other delicate industrial grasping tasks.

We are looking forward to welcoming you on Monday.
