  • Northeastern engineers developing nimble robotic arms

    Robotics & Innovation - 07/27/2021

    Researchers from Northeastern University, Massachusetts, are working to eliminate the stiff, jerky motions in robotic arms to make them deft enough to gently pick up an egg or sturdy enough to stack dinner plates.

    “With no motors in the arm, they are much lighter than a traditional arm,” said Peter Whitney, assistant professor of mechanical and industrial engineering at Northeastern. “So now if you have a lighter arm, it’s much easier to move it around.”
