Keywords: Sofa - SoftRobots

Functional Description: This plugin builds on the plugin SoftRobots ( ). Inside the plugin, there is some constraint components that are used to describe the robot (effectors, actuators, sensors). An optimisation algorithm is provided to find the efforts to put on actuators in order to place the robot in a the closest possible configuration than the one described by "effectors", or to a state described by "sensors". This method used to control the soft-robots in the task space is patented.
