Model of a Coil-Reinforced Cylindrical Soft Actuator

A cylindrical soft actuator is suitable for applications in which pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders are conventionally used. In this report, we discuss the force output model of a spring-reinforced-type cylindrical soft actuator. This type of actuator outputs a larger force than the air pressure mult...
