Tentacle Manipulator


    In contrast to the Elephant's Trunk, this robotic arm has a continuous backbone. The robot has 2 sections with 2 degrees of freedom each, and is remotely actuated (similar to the Elephant Trunk). The primary purpose of the Tentacle Manipulator is to study kinematic and dynamic modeling, especially as they relate to vibration control for hyper-redundant robots.
