Soft Robot Demonstrations

December 5, 2019 - 2:00pm to 2:45pm
d'Arbeloff Lab: Building 520, Room 145


Please join us on Thursday, December 5 between 2:00 and 2:45 pm in Bldg. 520 Room 145 (d’Arbeloff Teaching Lab) for demonstrations of soft robotics projects from the IntroSem course ME 23N: Soft Robots for Humanity.While traditional robotic manipulators are constructed from rigid links and simple joints, a new generation of robotic devices are soft, using flexible, deformable materials. Students in this class gained hands-on experience building soft robots using various materials, actuators, and programming to create robots that perform different tasks. Student teams will demonstrate 8 unique, physical projects designed to help people. See attached flyer for details; the class website is here.The event is open to the public, and light snacks will be served. Please bring your friends and colleagues!
