Two examples of soft robotic platforms with highly non-linear sensors and actuators

Toward smart composites: small-scale, untethered prediction and control for soft sensor/actuator systems

May 2, 2022

We present a suite of algorithms and tools for model-predictive control of sensor/actuator systems with embedded microcontroller units (MCU). These MCUs can be colocated with sensors and actuators, thereby enabling a new class of smart composites capable of autonomous behavior that does not require an external computer. In this approach,...
