AC/DC: A Charm lab / Defrost team Collaboration

Inria@SiliconValley Associate Team

Defrost team (Deformable Robotic Software, Inria Lille – Nord Europe) and the Charm Lab (Collaborative HAptics and Robotics in Medicine Lab, Stanford University, USA) on the topic of soft robots. On this topic, these two entities are very complementary because the Charm Lab is interested in the new design, the realization, the planning and the experimentation and the Defrost team is more centered on mechanical modeling, simulation and the algorithms of control. The collaboration is based on two axes: (1) the creation of flexible robots whose position and rigidity can be controlled, (2) the mechanical modeling and simulation of a robot that navigates in an environment through growth.
