A modular approach to soft robots

Cagdas D. Onal, Daniela Rus
2012 2012 4th IEEE RAS & EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics (BioRob)  
This paper describes a modular approach to creating soft robotic systems.  ...  The modular nature of these robots enable distributed sensing and computation elements. Composition techniques of such soft robots are defined. Example systems are demonstrated and analyzed.  ...  Snakes achieve this by anisotropic frictional properties of their skin [16] , [17] . Friction forces in the normal direction of the body axis are larger than those along the body.  ...
