Design, Implementation and Control of an Improved Hybrid Pneumatic-Electric Actuator for Robot Arms

Actuators used in robot arms need to be powerful, precise, and safe. We present the design, implementation, and control of a novel rotary hybrid pneumatic-electric actuator (HPEA) for use in robot arms, and collaborative robots in particular (also known as “cobots”). This HPEA...
