Abstract

Nowadays, certain kinds of robots have been developed to be used in proximity to daily human activities. Backdriveability is important for robots to act according to users' movements. We want to develop a linear actuator of high power and backdriveability. In this study we aim to achieve high generative force and backdriveability with a novel linear actuator, because there are many straight line operations in real space. In this paper, we aim to create a new Electro-Rheological (ER) gel linear actuator by reviewing the prototype ER gel linear actuator.
