Fatigue Life and Frequency Response of Braided Pneumatic Actuators

9 years 6 months ago
Fatigue Life and Frequency Response of Braided Pneumatic Actuators
Although braided pneumatic actuators are capable of producing phenomenal forces compared to their weight, they have yet to see mainstream use due to their relatively short fatigue lives. By improving manufacturing techniques, actuator lifetime was extended by nearly an order of magnitude. Another concern is that their response times may be too long for control of legged robots. In addition, the frequency response of these actuators was found to be similar to that of human muscle.
