Robotic Multifilament Muscles In Action

Robotic Multifilament Muscles In Action

Today, if you mention the word “robot”, images of motors and servos will often come to mind to many people. But perhaps a better model of articulation is found in our own bodies, in our linear muscle structure. In this robotic example we find a robot with multifilament muscle actuators that closely model our own muscles. The robot was constructed by Suzumori Endo Lab of Tokyo Institute of Technology.
