Advanced robots still have safety and speed challenges when working in collaboration with humans. Our robust MR actuators will revolutionize robotics providing very high-speed capabilities that will safely stop when there is a contact with a human, while being controlled in force. Acting as human muscles to perform more tasks naturally, a whole new generation of robots is coming.
Having a single delocalized motor for many degrees of freedom (no motor at the joint) allows for a light arm structure resulting in very high Torque/Inertia, high acceleration and high-speed capabilities.
Combination of high bandwidth, low inertia, high back-drivability and high range of impedance adjustability lead to human-like robotic manipulation, control in force and high transparency.
Less than 10X the energy transmitted in a collision when compared to harmonic drive leading to increased level of security.
Actuators do not have metal-to-metal contact, but a fluidic content, thus no gear impact (no damage) during emergency stops.
Actuators controlled in force lead to the elimination of expensive sensors and guidance vision, resulting in low cost robotic systems.
Patent-protected applications that offer differentiation to benefit from market leadership.
