Abstract

This study aims at development of Intelligent McKibben actuator, in which soft rubber displacement sensor is integrated. Recently, McKibben actuator attracts engineers because of light weight, high output power and high compliance. But in case of using it for servo control at present, the systems need encoders or potentiometers, therefore the systems tend to grow the size and to take away from compliance which is an important advantage for safe and secure mechanism. We developed soft displacement sensor and incorporated it in McKibben actuator, named it Intelligent McKibben actuator and proved its potential.
