3D-printing snake-like continuum robots

3D-printing snake-like continuum robots

Robot continuums are flexible, slender systems that take inspiration from snakes, trunks, tentacles and plants. Thanks to their shape, controllable by pulling or releasing tendons from their base, these robots operate in areas unreachable by industrial robots (e.g. for repair of aerial turbines or endoscopic interventions in the human body). This research aims to make continuum robots accessible and cost-effective by producing their bodies as a single part with flexible filament 3D printing and using servomotors and fishing cables as actuation elements.

LARM - Laboratorio di Robotica e Meccatronica - Università di Roma Tor Vergata

Established in 1990 under the guidance of Prof. Marco Ceccarelli, the Robotics and Mechatronics Laboratory (LARM: Laboratorio di Robotica e Meccatronica) is based at the University of Rome Tor Vergata.
Our research focuses on the design, analysis, and development of robots and smart devices to improve our everyday life, ranging from low-cost service robots to medical sensors.
Our interests include robot kinematics, multi-body dynamics, robot design, service robots, medical and rehabilitation robots, and the history of mechanism and machine science.
