Design of a soft gripper for direct and safe grasping

Soft robotic grippers are great candidates for grasping and handling delicate objects without damaging them. Due to their inherent softness soft grippers can interact with objects safely without the need for sensory feedback or complicated control systems and algorithms. The objective of this project is to 3D print a soft gripper based on a particular mechanism (e.g., tendon-driven, pneumatic actuators, etc.) and characterize its performance.
