Project Description

The objective of this project is to perform a preliminary analysis of the possible use of tensigrity structures as a new approach to the construction of mobile robots with different shapes and properties that usual robots, wheeled or legged, do not have. Tensegrity are light, deformable structures that may be able to adapt their form to unconstrained environments.
