Research Institution
In this phase I proposal, we seek a solution to the problem of wiring sensors and actuators on periphery of a robot"s frame(i.e. those positioned to make contact with environment). We will accomplish this using printing technologies and a new proprietary layered carbon fiber forming technology. Because we will enhance segments from CyPhy Works UAV with this technology, this project will have a near-term impact on the way military robots are constructed. Our long-term goal is a"one process"fabrication techniques for disposable UAVs, smart munitions, and consumer robots. This"one process"would include mechanical, electrical, and sensing components.
