This research is focused on robotic grasping and agricultural robotics.
In this project you will develop a soft robotic gripper that is suitable for harvesting delicate fruits.
The gripper is intended to be used on a seven-degrees-of-freedom (7DoF) robotic arm for autonomous fruit harvesting.
Different approaches to this problem can be taken, including designing the haptic sensors or soft finger mechanisms.
We expect this project to explore whether we can design a:
- soft robotic gripper that can mimic human hand dexterity
- soft actuator gripper to harvest soft fruits like blueberries or raspberries.
