 German Scientists Develop Robotic Arm That can Absorb High Impact Shocks

Scientists in Germany have created a new robotic arm that provides a similar freedom as experienced by a human arm and is also able to absorb high velocity impacts.

Researchers from the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics at the German Aerospace Center created the robotic arm that is very similar to the human arm and provides a movement freedom of 19 degrees, just one degree less than the human arm.

It can also absorb high impact shocks such as being hit with a hammer or a baseball bat without any damage while the 38 tendons attached to it helps it to grasp an object better by monitoring the tension exerted by it on the arm.

The new arm solves the major problem with the current generation of robotic arms that break down even if a small amount of pressure is exerted.
