Universal Payload Gripper

The design and development of a soft robotic gripper capable of applying controlled force without self-damage. Current methods for securing payloads usually require constant modifications depending on the object’s shape, size, and weight. The Naval Undersea Warfare Center would like to develop a gripper that can hold a wide variety of objects placed within it. This gripper must feature soft robotic fingers made of a flexible and strong elastomeric material.
