Ctrl-P: Control Pressure (latest)

By Clark Teeple

The world is just within reach!

A custom pneumatic control system featuring smooth control of pressure at a high bandwidth.

This work was done as part of a research project at the Harvard Microrobotics Lab. Our goal was to build a system capable of smooth control of pressure to drive our custom soft robotic hands.
