The demand for robots engaged in human activities, such as nursing care and housework, is presently growing. In the vicinity of humans, these robots must operate taking into consideration the human safety. Therefore, the actuator in these robots needs to be soft, light, and powerful. To fulfill these demands, we adopted artificial muscles as actuators of… CONTINUE READING
