SMA-Actuated Biomimetic Robotic Colonoscope

😎 New DIY robot kits

Colonoscopy is not everyone’s favorite procedure but it can save your life. In the future, advanced robots will be used to do the procedure while providing patients with a less unpleasant experience. This robotic colonoscope has a camera, functional skin with sinusoidal cavities and thick walls, and air tubes.

Design, Modeling and Control of a SMA-Actuated Biomimetic Robot

As the researchers explain, SMA springs are independently actuated to provide 9 DOFs to the robot. It can move at max speed of 4 mm/s.
