The main goal of WG2 “Soft Robotics and Bodyware” is to analyse the revolutionary potential of soft robotics, and to investigate methods and components, such as novel control techniques, new actuators, new mechanical joints, new sensors, new soft/functional materials as, for example flexible electronics, novel simulation libraries and frameworks, for modelling, design, and experimentation of soft robots.

Close cooperation of this “Soft Robotics and Bodyware” WG with WG1 – Embodied Intelligence in Natural and Artificial Physical Agents” and with WG3 – “Energy Management in Natural and Artificial Agents” will be established in order to better identify the needs of future robot in terms of material and energy.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_color=”#f5f5f5″ top_padding=”50″ bottom_padding=”50″][vc_column][block_title title=”List of topics” description=”Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste ment natus sit voluptatem ren accusantium rendse dolorem formas humanitatis per seacula quarta.”][/block_title][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″ enable_animation=”true” animation=”bounceIn” delay=”200″][list_item title=”Sensors”][list_item title=”Actuators”][list_item title=”Soft Robotics Technologies and structures”][list_item title=”Smart Materials”][list_item title=”Evolutionary Robotics”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][list_item title=”Artificial skin”][list_item title=”Control architectures and paradigms for soft robots”][list_item title=”Bioinspired self-healing materials”][list_item title=”Flexible and Stretchable electronics”][list_item title=”Design principles”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][block_title title=”Working Group 2 Board (WG2B)” description=”Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste ment natus sit voluptatem ren accusantium rendse dolorem formas humanitatis per seacula quarta.”][/block_title][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″ enable_animation=”true” animation=”bounceIn” delay=”200″][staff staff=”2419″ style=”style_2″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][staff staff=”2420″ style=”style_2″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][staff staff=”2421″ style=”style_2″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_color=”#f5f5f5″ top_padding=”50″ bottom_padding=”40″][vc_column column_padding=”4%”][block_title title=”Working Group 2 Experts” description=”Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste ment natus sit voluptatem ren accusantium rendse dolorem formas humanitatis per seacula quarta.”][/block_title][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner enable_animation=”true” animation=”bounceIn” delay=”200″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1510929218225{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]
