Technique speeds up thermal actuation for soft robotics

Journal Reference: Shuang Wu, Gregory Langston Baker, Jie Yin, Yong Zhu. Fast Thermal Actuators for Soft Robotics. Soft Robotics, 2021; DOI: 10.1089/soro.2021.0080 “Using thermal actuation is not new for soft robots, but the biggest challenge for soft thermal actuators was that they were relatively slow — and we’ve made them fast,” says Yong Zhu, corresponding … Read more
