MRI Safe Hybrid-Fluid Actuator
Please visit our project website for detailed information, images, and video of the design in action!
The design project consists of two main components: the rotary actuator and fluid transmission line.
The fluid line connects two identical actuators. One converts input rotary motion to linear motion, and the other takes the linear motion from the fluid transmission and converts it back to output rotary motion on a robotic arm joint.
My Role & Experience
Design the fluid transmission component, which included pump, tank, valves, tubes and fittings
Automatic pressurization and phasing system controlled by Arduino
