Project Description

We propose a wrapping gripper to grasp chopped or granular food materials. A wrapping gripper consists of multiple inflatable soft fingers. Fingers will expand according to air pressure so that the gap between neighboring fingers shrinks, with successfully grasping chopped or granular food materials.
