Improving the design of soft, assistive wearables

July 1st, 2022

Scientists from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have devised a scalable pipeline to computationally design and digitally fabricate soft pneumatic actuators. Called “PneuAct,” it has resolved the challenge with soft robotics, which have required manual design and fabrication.  PneuAct uses a machine knitting process, which operates autonomously. A human designer specifies the […]
