Soft Robotics and Biodesign Lab

Soft pneu-net actuators design

Programmable design of soft pneu-net actuators can generate coupled bending and twisting motions";

Welcome to Gu Research Group

he SJTU Soft robotics and biodesign (SRB) lab focuses on design, manufacturing, modeling and control of new bioinspired, soft robots for safe, compatible and adaptive interactions with humans and environments. SRB Lab is part of Robotics Institute, School of Mechanical Engineering in Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Our current research interests include soft robotics, bioinspired robot design and motion control, smart materials actuators and sensors, and additive manufacturing with soft materials. Example applications include soft wearable rehabilitation robots for assisting and restoring the ability of the humans with the upper extremity weakness in activities of daily living, bioinspired robotic systems for grasping and manipulation, and soft sensing systems for human-robot interaction.
