The Technology

The present invention relates to the field of robotic actuated mechanisms, especially those having a high load lifting capability and light weight, such that they are capable of being stacked end-to-end to provide a hyper-redundant, high flexibility, long robotic arm.

The patented technology related to an elephant-like trunk (robotic link mechanism) that can lift its own weight and external loads having extended maneuverability without compromising on accuracy and stability.

Advantages

  • High load lifting capability
  • Light weight
  • High flexibility

Applications and Opportunities

  • Surgical tools
  • Search and rescue tools
  • Remote bomb disposal
