Proc. ASME. SMASIS2023, ASME 2023 Conference on Smart Materials, Adaptive Structures and Intelligent Systems, V001T06A007, September 11–13, 2023
Publisher: American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Paper No: SMASIS2023-111077
... Abstract Biologically inspired soft robots that are mass manufacturable and have silent operation are needed for safe robot-animal interactions. Although electrothermal soft actuators employed in jellyfish-inspired robots have shown promise, they suffer major drawbacks like high power...

Publisher: American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Paper No: SMASIS2023-110774
... Abstract Soft robots can be limited in applications when their pose in space is difficult to estimate, particularly when actuated by smart thermoelectric materials with difficult-to-model mechanics. This paper presents a comparative study of approximations and simplifications that could make...

Paper No: SMASIS2022-90798
... Abstract We present a piezoelectric energy harvester that is assembled on a soft robot and converts its mechanical locomotion to electricity. The piezoelectric transducers are used in various applications because of their durability, flexibility, and self-powering characteristics. In this study...

... the inertia. A robot inspired to roots’ growth could be employed in search and rescue operations or in environmental monitoring. In this work the design of a soft robot inspired to root’s growth is presented. The body of the robot consists of a cylindrical plastic membrane folded inside itself. When air...
