Telescoping 3D printed robots developed to help in search & rescue

3D printing has been used to help create a program for exploring the possibilities of objects that can be extended and compacted at will. As a deployable feature that can be added to a variety of shapes the technique has great potential across mechanical and civil engineering to make structures and innovative machines. In robotics, the approach has particular application for remote controlled vehicles, used to access hard-to-reach and typically treacherous areas for search and rescue. Aye aye captain! The novel concept for these retractible structures has been explored extensively, for the first time, in a study by researchers […]
