Continuum Arm Manipulator Refinement for Assistive Technology
Keywords:assistive technology, continuum robots, NSF, robotics, RobotREU
Rigid link robots currently dominate the market for manipulators in assistive technology, though research on continuum robots for assistive technology has been developing over recent years. These types of robots have a continuous backbone that allows them to have infinite degrees of freedom, making them highly compliant, however this brings challenges in terms of modelling and control. In this work, we describe the design for a continuum arm suitable for assistive technology applications.
