Topic 1: Soft Robots based on Dielectric Elastomer Actuators

Speaker: Dr Jian Zhu, Assistant Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, National University of Singapore University

Abstract: Robots have been proposed to relieve human beings from dangerous environments or tedious manufacturing processes, or mimic human beings or animals in appearance, behaviour, and/or cognition. Most of traditional robots use hard materials. Inspired by natural creatures, researchers recently become more and more interested in soft robots, which are made of soft materials, say polymers. To exploit animal-like locomotion and behaviour, it is essential to develop muscle-like actuators with properties close to biological systems. In this project we employ dielectric elastomers – one class of soft active materials – as artificial muscles. A dielectric elastomer actuator can deform in response to voltage, and can exhibit unique attributes, including large voltage-induced deformation, fast response, low weight, quiet operation, etc. In this seminar we will discuss several soft robots which are developed based on dielectric elastomer actuators, such as a jellyfish robot, artificial muscles for facial expressions, an inchworm-like robot, etc.

 

Topic 2: Multi-material 3D Printing for Soft Robotic Hand

Speaker: Dr Mingzhu Zhu, Senior Researcher, Global Innovation Research Organization, Ritsumeikan University, Japan

Abstract: Despite the rapid development of soft robot in recent years, new strategies for designing and fabricating soft robots are required. Multi-material 3D printing has provided the possibility to direct 3D printing soft actuators of high complexity and functionality within a fast and easy fabrication process. This talk introduces several prototypes of soft robotic finger which have the potential to further expand the soft robotic applications. Prototypes of the soft finger, with material hardness transfer from the soft-bodied actuator to the hard-pneumatic tubing and functional unit, are fully made by one step 3D printing. A multi-material 3D printer, Objet350Connex, is used to directly print out the whole design without requiring an additional casting process. A variable stiffness soft robotic gripper to ensure grasping robustness during high acceleration is then developed. The proposed gripper contains two identical soft fingers, each finger including a pneumatic actuator and an integrated layer jamming unit. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed design, the gripper is mounted on a robotic arm to evaluate its grasping robustness. With the aid of the integrated layer jamming unit, grasping robustness can be guaranteed when the robotic arm is moving with an acceleration up to 30 m/s2. The results show that proposed soft gripper is an effective design which can guarantee grasping robustness during high acceleration.

 

Topic 3: Flexible Self-Powered Sensor based on Energy Harvesting Technology

Speaker: Dr Mengying Xie, Senior Researcher, Global Innovation Research Organization, Ritsumeikan University, Japan

Abstract: Self-powered flexible electronics are of particular interest and important for the next generation electronics due to their lightweight, flexible and self-sustainable properties. Many self-powered sensors made from piezoelectric composite materials are either inflexible or possess low piezoelectricity. This talk will introduce self-powered flexible and highly active pressure and shear sensors based on freeze casting ceramic-polymer structures. A lamellar lead zirconate titanate (PZT) structure is initially developed via freeze-casting and the piezoelectric composites are formed by impregnating a polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) matrix into the aligned pore channels. The structured PZT-PDMS composites exhibited an effective longitudinal piezoelectric coefficient (d*33) that is higher than that of the monolithic ceramic due to the combination of bending and flexural effects. The use of freeze casting enables the manufacture of complex and arbitrary shaped 3D piezoelectric architectures, along with the unique advantages of low-cost and ease of fabrication. Furthermore, the manufactured self-powered sensors are demonstrated in a range of applications, such as, acceleration, strain and touch sensors that use the d33, d31 and d15 coefficients to detect longitudinal, transverse and shear loads. It also expands on the potential applications of freeze casting and provides new opportunities for the manufacture of future electronic sensors.

Key2: Google’s Cloud Robotics: helping industries make use of intelligent and collaborative automation

Damon Kohler

Room A

Emerging technologies have begun to disrupt traditional automation approaches through increased flexibility. Collaborative robots, which can work autonomously and safely alongside humans, combine modern sensors and easy programmability to operate effectively in unstructured environments. Affordable cloud computing and services enable not only scalability and increasingly capable perception, but also shared learning and cooperation between robots.
