Bloom Reconfigurable Soft Robotic Gripper

BioInspired Robotics & Design Laboratory

Robotics, Automaton and Automation Design Bloom Reconfigurable Soft Robotic Gripper by BioInspired Robotics & Design Laboratory Bloom is a bio-inspired, pneumatically actuated, shape morphing soft robotic gripper that is capable of on-site rapid workspace reconfigurability. It features passive retractable nails, bi-directional foldable petals, and a flexible palm to adapt to various grasping and manipulation tasks. The ability to rapidly reconfigure grasping workspace on-the-fly allows Bloom to perform assembly tasks consisting of highly varying subtasks, a feat previously not possible using conventional rigid or existing soft grippers.
