Abstract

Soft continuum robots are a new class of robotic devices, which are very promising for enabling measurement applications especially in remote, difficult-to-reach environments. In this work, we propose the use of a particular soft robot, which is able to evert and steer from the tip, as a sensor delivery system. The measurement system consists of two major sections: i) the robotic platform for movement purposes; and ii) the sensing part (i.e., a sensor attached to its tip to enable the measurement). As a case study of the use of the soft-growing robot as a sensor-delivery system, the transportation of a wireless temperature sensor towards a remote hot source was considered. The preliminary results anticipate the suitability of soft continuum robotic platforms for remote applications in confined and constrained environments.
