Underwater Robotic Arm

Exhibit Code: OUT-123
Zone: Engineering Park
Location: Outside (OUT/000) - Outside
Time: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Age Group: All Ages

This project is part of a partnership between RIT and Boeing to research and develop underwater technologies. This project's primary focus is on the development of a robotic arm, or manipulator that can offer more dexterity and environmental safety than current underwater manipulators. The arm is actuated by pumping water into McKibben Muscles which act similarly to human muscles. The use of water to actuate the muscles not only is safe for the environment, but ensures that the arm will be able to function at great depths in the sea.
