Soft Robotics Laboratory

Welcome to the Soft Robotics Laboratory, which was established in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Sungkyunkwan University in the Spring of 2016.

Soft robotics is an emerging area of robotics that complements previous traditional robotics by focusing on solving a new category of challenges. Combining bioinspiration with engineering design, soft robotics emulates biological systems to solve problems that cannot be solved using traditional engineering solutions.
By combining the study of soft materials, novel fabrication methods and novel actuation principles, soft robotics is a field in constant evolution. The Soft Robotics Lab at SKKU aims to push back the frontier of the field.
