Session 1: Design

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The session highlighted overarching themes that are characteristic of recent approaches to robot/mechanism design. These include: (i) flexibility of the design in order to address a wide spectrum of applications (e.g., a four-fingered hand that can deal with objects of various sizes, shapes, and masses); (ii) new materials that can really expand the design capabilities; (iii) bio-inspired approaches that yield highly innovative systems; and (iv) minimalistic systems that produce systems of low cost since fewer actuators than DOFs are utilized.
