Richard Diteesawat from the University of Bristol team presented the team’s research on Bubble Artificial Muscles at the RoboSoft conference in Livorno, Italy! Well done Richard!
Bubble Artificial Muscles are a new type of pneumatic actuator that are thin, light, and super strong!
We’re happy to announce that The Right Trousers is now published in the highest impact factor robotics journal in the world, Soft Robotics!
Tim Helps’ paper describes how artificial muscles can be made to be proprioceptive (self-sensing) by driving them using conductive working fluids. This could allow The Right Trousers of the future to detect your posture, allowing them to improve your stability, prevent falls, and predict your movements more accurately!
The paper has been published Open Access so is available to read for all! Read it here!
