Abstract

Despite the traditional robots, soft robots do not have heavy and expensive parts such as motors, instead they are made of more advanced materials. The natural complexity of smart materials is exploited to provide delicate movements that we need in variety of applications. In this study, Ionic polymer-metal nanocomposite as an electro-active smart material is used to build a ring-like robot.

Description

The observation method was used for the data collection methodology.
