The goal of this project is to design, manufacture, and characterize soft robotic actuators. Actuators are designed to be resilient and consistent in mechanical properties. Data is collected on actuator performance to characterize mechanical properties over the life of the actuator, up to failure. This information can be utilized for gait synthesis and adaptive gaits in walking robots.

In this project, we are taking store bought HexBug Spiders and hacking them. The result of this is a spider that instead of receiving commands via the IR sensor that comes with it, now receives commands via WiFi. These bots will be used to implement a swarm algorithm..
