Design, modelling and simulation of soft grippers using new bimorph pneumatic bending actuators

Soft compliant grasping is essential in delicate manipulation tasks typically required in manufacturing and/or medical applications to prevent stress concentration at the point of contact. In comparison with their rigid counterparts, the intrinsic compliance of soft grippers offers simpler control a...
