Extensile Pneumatic Artificial Muscles

Abstract

Extensile PAM's have a high actuation-force vs mass ratio. They can extend up to 80%-100% of their original length. These capabilities allow us to accomplish tasks with little effort. By bunching up these PAM's we can even do more. 

About the Robotics Student Seminars

The Robotics Student Seminars at the University of Maryland College Park are a student-run series of talks given by current robotics students.

The purpose of these talks is to:

  • Encourage interaction between Robotics students from different subfields;
  • Provide an opportunity for Robotics students to be aware of and possibly get involved in the research their peers are conducting;
  • Provide an opportunity for Robotics students to receive feedback on their current research;
  • Provide speaking opportunities for Robotics students.
