Bendable Linear Actuator

As part of the research project „Bendable Linear Actuator“ an innovative drive for Soft Robotics applications is developed. The actuator is build up as a tubular permanent-magnet linear motor. The main goal of the project is to generate a preferably light-weighted and bendable system in order to make completely new design options possible for support system operating close to the human body such as soft exoskeletons.

Central aspects:

  • Method development
  • Analytical and numerical multi-physical analysis of direct electrical drives
  • Construction and Installation of a test bench for the metrological analysis of actuator prototypes
