Abstract

In recent years, many researchers have been focusing on the different novel techniques in designing pneumatic soft actuator that can produce bending motion. This paper presents a novel soft actuator design; a combination of different braided angles of artificial muscle applied on a single chamber soft actuator to produce bending motion. The actuator construction is based on the theory of contraction and extension of artificial muscle. It comprises of fiber-reinforced inside silicone rubber and is capable to create one-sided bending motion. Analysis of nonlinear finite element method is conducted to predict the direction and bending angles of the actuator before a prototype of actuator is fabricated. Based on the results, the developed soft actuator can realize bending motion after standard pressure driving experiment is executed.
