00:00:00
so good morning these slides firstly what we do in the lab so soft materials have been introduced already by my colleague timit
00:00:06
bike so it won't spend so much time about what's important he
00:00:10
does um slide shows do what we do on the
00:00:13
uh upper left corner you see flying robert i'm very interested in making robots which
00:00:18
are usable by people and can do things that were not be done before
00:00:22
so i started flying robotics about fifteen years ago when i look at the way in
00:00:26
which we can take these rubber it's a flying them word error human secluded environment
00:00:31
so they must be saved it must be portable portable nice that must be for the ball sick means that when the enter
00:00:36
in contact with object with humans it will happen here safe
00:00:40
and also they had the sensors and intelligence capable of
00:00:44
letting them understand what happens around so over the past the ten
00:00:48
years or so we developed the artificial compound eyes very kind
00:00:52
uh with the same properties of insect dies with hundreds seven hundred dies in um one gram
00:00:58
for example we have developed many vision based navigational got it that allowed is robust to move around
00:01:03
we have a design protection cages flexible protection k. just like just
00:01:07
like body of things x. which can be squeezed and or
00:01:11
can resist collisions uh we've created to spin of company since friday can number two in the word for professional drones
00:01:17
it might be the number one company for inspection drawn inspection um we're looking additional technologies and
00:01:23
the data grid developing robots with a flexible wings we're now working on a new um
00:01:29
delivery drum very person and saved it maybe i can see more during the summer
00:01:34
however although i've been looking for many years at the bottom of robbers it turns out that humans want control does roberts and so
00:01:40
what is meant to control rubs for human is not okay you can do joysticks
00:01:44
but very difficult or like you heard can control you wanna draw but
00:01:48
you can use joysticks again but there are so many degrees of freedom so
00:01:51
i started to look at a possibly giving what we call embodied interaction
00:01:55
we are human bodies so we can move our body robots everybody and we my goal is
00:02:00
to establish a connection between the two and this takes technologies where or on the body
00:02:05
and it also takes artificial intelligence that can adapt to different users
00:02:10
two different motion styles into different levels of stress fatigue and training so
00:02:16
one of the project is indeed controlling it won't with uh this wearable flight jacket is echoed
00:02:22
the i will focus known to technologies that we need only to which are ready for a licensing
00:02:28
oh the very first one is when you mix soft systems that was for whatever and for this flying
00:02:33
roberts it would move around one of the problem of soft is that they are very weak
00:02:37
so the air soft squishy is crazy you can do all things when it comes to leaf things
00:02:42
or to resist forces david problem and so uh one of the thing i'm focusing on these days
00:02:48
the cold variable stiffness materials or materials that can exert stupor
00:02:52
forces that normally cannot do and to do so to
00:02:55
achieve this goal i combine different technologies here you see a group or we showed a few months ago
00:03:01
it can adapt to any different sort of um shapes without damaging them so it's useful for
00:03:07
manipulating balloons cells of vegetables it's by compatible so
00:03:12
it's no problem but um as it
00:03:14
was indeed it is only one gram any can lift up sixty times its weight
00:03:21
can we have the volume please i developed and you whatever that contrast almost and shaped object
00:03:30
it will to class action delta objects in fashion objects yet at the same time it's strong enough
00:03:34
to lift heavy objects tentative does devices that we combine the functionalities which of the study before
00:03:40
addition muscles intellect tradition into one single device that has the two functionality
00:03:45
it wants things to that particular but turning of the utterance
00:03:50
so this is our two thing that ever figure one finger to the fingers are searchable sullivan's with specially designed shape of
00:03:57
letters and then we'll have two things to happen one is attending shade that allows us to get close the object
00:04:03
and then we use the special shape at the end to get varies from holding thanks to litigation
00:04:08
the advantage of these devices if you can make them many different types of
00:04:11
objects many shapes for example you can grab a piece of paper flight
00:04:15
you can grab an egg we can go any type of object in his up so
00:04:20
this is the one technology but no one one faction that in different shapes
00:04:24
and we're adding additional capabilities the second thing is what interested is making it fibre just like in the terminator movie
00:04:30
look we didn't extremely soft you can also make it but then if you wanted the with the flip
00:04:35
of a switch it can become the strongest method and uses useful both uh robert and for where
00:04:44
what we have here is a new thread which normally three to but
00:04:48
when you play it it's more voltage can become soft like spaghetti
00:04:52
but on top of that it's also very structurally construction to four times
00:04:56
in the transition between rigid and soft takes only ten seconds
00:05:03
i happen to think choir
00:05:13
and in proper yeah yeah
00:05:20
it is a fred you can wrap it around the object you can meet it you can get all sorts of shapes
00:05:26
under forty there's a lot of different applications for example you can use it for about the change their shape
00:05:32
you can use for prosthetic devices you can use for furniture that
00:05:36
can change their shape you can use it in perspective uh
00:05:40
okay so that was the end if you are just just an advertiser if you're interested in the
00:05:43
buttocks technologies we haven't disobey specifically for robotics technology at the p. f. l. and switzerland
00:05:49
takes place the beginning of november every year we have seventy demonstration prototypes in companies
00:05:54
and coming and bringing together like also large companies
