Welcome to the Soft robotics group of the KU Leuven, part of the Micro & precision engineering research group. Our research focusses on the design, fabrication and application of soft robotic systems, ranging from centimeters to micrometers in size.

The aim of the group is to revolutionize the robotic world by introducing flexible materials in the design, going from hard to soft robots and from software to hardware intelligence.

Modelling embodied intelligence in soft fluidic networks with FONS

Inflatable soft robots are much more than soft actuators for gripping delicate objects. They are rich dynamic structures capable of memory and computations all on their own. Carefully designed soft robotic systems therefore do not require any electronic control at all to perform complex functions. Instead, their geometry and materials automatically react to stimuli from … Continue reading Modelling embodied intelligence in soft fluidic networks with FONS
