5 Years of Research on Extensible Tendon-driven Continuum Robots

We have been working on dextrous extensible tendon-driven continuum robots since 2014. After 3 prototype iterations, a patent, conference and workshop papers based on various student contributions, we are proud to see this summarizing paper being published in the International Journal of Robotics Research! With 7 mm diameter, this is one of the smallest, if …
