Digital Hydraulics for Green Hydraulic Fluid Power Machines

Hydraulic fluid power is used in a variety of sectors that are important to the UK, including robotics, transportation, oil & gas, and machinery for industry, construction and agriculture. Read more

Design and control of intelligent soft actuators and robots

Soft actuators and robotic devices can be considered as soft systems that aim to use highly compliant materials with elastic moduli that are comparable to soft biological materials and human tissues (kPa–MPa). Read more

Artificial Intelligence for Soft Robots

Animals exploit soft structures to move smoothly and effectively in complex natural environments. These capabilities have inspired robotic engineers to incorporate soft actuating technologies into their designs. Read more
