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.

Hardware Actuation Sequencing for Soft Robots

Tethering pneumatic soft robots with multiple degrees of freedom is bulky and unpractical. Our work just published in Advanced Materials describes a new approach to embed hardware intelligence in soft robots where multiple actuators are attached to the same pressure supply, and their actuation sequence is programmed by the interaction between nonlinear actuators and passive … Continue reading Hardware Actuation Sequencing for Soft Robots
