Flexibility of inherent compliant robotic joints helps to avoid injuries in case of intended or unintended contact between robots and human. Therefore, soft-actuated robotic joints are becoming increasingly important for robots with expected Human-Robot-Interaction. But the highly nonlinear behavior (hysteresis, load velocity dependence) of soft materials complicates an exact and reliable prediction of the joint angle characteristic, especially if one actuator should be usable in different areas, from elder care to industrial tasks. Therefore, a methodology is provided to approximate the case depending change of material properties due to the characteristic requirements for different cases of application.
You and your colleagues are cordially invited to participate in the conference “Symposium Design for X” to be held at the “Tagungshotel Jesteburg”, Jesteburg near to Hamburg, Germany on 5 – 6 October 2016. The annual event provides a platform to young postgraduates to present and discuss their new approaches in the field of product development. Industry professionals and professors will enrich these discussions with their manifold experience. This year's symposium will be hosted by Prof. Dieter...
