Application of hydraulic actuators to robotic systems has different areas where electric motor system cannot be used. High bandwidth together with high force and torque make the system smaller and faster. Some examples are introduced made by KNR systems Inc.
Although the applications of hydraulic actuators to robotic systems has grown, it is difficult to get the customized components for the research platform. High bandwidth with higher force and torque compared to the electric motor in respect of size and weight has unique area as an actuator for robots. As the easy-getting products, the nozzle flapper type… (More)
