SLABot Robot: Soft Elastic Robot


SLABot Robot, SLABot

SLABot Robot is a soft elastic robot that goal is to discover the simplest geometry and actuator arrangement that will produce complex behavior for movement through unstructured environments. SLABot is constructed of a slab  of cast, open-cell, polyurethane foam. Motor-tendon actuators are arranged in a specific orientation to produce forward locomotion and steering. The tendons are laced through the foam slab and, when contracted, compress and buckletheslab revealing differential friction surfaces.
