Metamaterial-based Robots for Surgical Applications

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Mechanical metamaterials are materials which do not exist in nature but are rather purposefully constructed to exhibit certain mechanical properties. Manipulators composed of these materials are performant while remaining simple and elegant. However, the motion capability of the manipulator is encoded in its physical composition and cannot be changed. We present multi-modal metamaterial-based robot prototypes which can switch between the behaviors found in two different metamaterials.
