A New Generation of High Dexterity Soft-bodied Octopus-inspired Robots

Stand number: 41


OCTOPUS studies the principles that give rise to the octopus sensory-motor abilities to define novel design principles and technologies for soft-bodied robots. The project could have implications in several fields such as underwater rescue or marine exploration, surgery.
The exhibit shows the most original results for new soft robotic technologies and biological research, with soft robot prototypes demonstrating the strategies of the dexterous movements of octopus body and arms. Visitors can interact with the soft arms of the octopus-like robot in a water tank.
