Abstract

We aim to create a novel prototype linear actuator with new structure applying an ER (Electro-Rheological) gel, a recent functional material. The actuator will be an all-purpose actuator satisfying characteristics for human-coexistence application. Such actuators for the application need large generative force, high speed response, good controllability, high safety, low friction, backdriveability and so on. We have put emphasis on the backdriveability and safety. The actuator developed by us will contribute to create robots manipulated by human recently aggressively researched.
