  • Plant-inspired rearrangement of liquid in a porous structure for controlled swelling 20. September 2023
    Soft robots can adapt to dynamic environments without prior knowledge of their properties. Plants inspire mechanisms for counterbalancing dynamic loads by locally modulating compliance through anisotropic humidity-responsive materials and structures. In addition to well-known passive bilayers, plants may also actively control swelling. The combination of robust hygroscopic material-level response and simple electrical control makes active […]

  • Controlling jumps through latches in small jumping robots 18. September 2023
    Small jumping robots can use springs to maximize jump performance, but they are typically not able to control the height of each jump owing to design constraints. This study explores the use of the jumper's latch, the component that mediates the release of energy stored in the spring, as a tool for controlling jumps. A […]

  • BECS-II: an updated bio-inspired electrocommunication system for small underwater robots 18. September 2023
    Some weakly electric fish can use electric signals to interact and communicate with each other in dark and complex underwater environments where traditional underwater communication fails. In our previous work, we developed a bio-inspired electrocommunication system (BECS) that serves as an effective alternative to traditional methods in this challenging underwater scenario performing communication at a […]
