Single motor actuated peristaltic wave generator for a soft bodied worm robot (2016)
Presentation / Conference
Winstone, B., Pipe, A. G., Melhuish, C., Callaway, M., Etoundi, A., & Dogramadzi, S. (2016, June). Single motor actuated peristaltic wave generator for a soft bodied worm robot. Paper presented at BioRob 2016 - IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics

This paper presents the design and development of a single motor actuated peristaltic worm robot with three segments using a bio-inspired method of locomotion with one actuator that achieves optimised worm like peristaltic motion. Each segment consis... Read More about Single motor actuated peristaltic wave generator for a soft bodied worm robot.

TACTIP - Tactile fingertip device, challenges in reduction of size to ready for robot hand integration (2012)
Presentation / Conference
Winstone, B., & Griffiths, G. (2012, December). TACTIP - Tactile fingertip device, challenges in reduction of size to ready for robot hand integration. Paper presented at 2012 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Biomimetics (ROBIO 2012)

Previous work on the TACTIP project has demonstrated a prototype tactile fingertip device, at a little over twice the diameter(40mm) of a human fingertip (16-20mm). Unlike most other developed MEMS sensors, the TACTIP device is appropriate for all ta...
