Air-powered computer memory helps soft robot control movements — ScienceDaily

Engineers at UC Riverside have unveiled an air-powered computer memory that can be used to control soft robots. The innovation overcomes one of the biggest obstacles to advancing soft robotics: the fundamental mismatch between pneumatics and electronics. The work is published in the open-access journal, PLOS One.

Pneumatic soft robots use pressurized air to move soft, rubbery limbs and grippers and are superior to traditional rigid robots for performing delicate tasks. They are also safer for humans to be around. Baymax, the healthcare companion robot in the 2014 animated Disney film, Big Hero 6, is a pneumatic robot for good reason.

But existing systems for controlling pneumatic soft robots still use electronic valves and computers to maintain the position of the robot’s moving parts. These electronic parts add considerable cost, size, and power demands to soft robots, limiting their feasibility.

To advance soft robotics toward the future, a team

‘Air-Powered’ Memory for ‘Soft Robots’ Plays the Piano, Pneumatic RAM to Answer Hardware Shortage?

An “air-powered” memory helped a soft robot to play the piano, using a technology called “pneumatic RAM” that uses atmospheric pressures to communicate the binary codes needed to function. The product is not using any hardware for its random access memory (RAM), and it could be something that could help make way for the hardware or chip shortage of the public.

The chip shortage is a massive problem that most of the industries in the world have been facing over the past year, including that of Intel’s CPU division, down to the distribution of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Innovative Design of Pneumatic Float Valves Allows Precise Level Control and Lower Cost of Ownership

Typical scenario: An alcohol distillation and fermentation plant in Texas operates between 60-100 fermentation tanks, each requiring level sensing technology to ensure the process of fermentation is properly carried out. Level sensing in alcoholic beverage production poses a set of unique challenges. In selecting a viable level sensing solution, a number of factors must be considered:

  1. Alcohol is a flammable liquid – safety is of paramount concern
  2. High pressures can be involved in fermentation and distillation operations
  3. Beverage industry guidelines for ensuring contaminants are not introduced by the equipment used must be adhered to
  4. Cost of operation must be minimized to help ensure profitability of the enterprise.

H&P Insights: A Safe Return to the Rails; Getting Air Preparation Just Right; IDEA! Awards Deadline is July 9

A Safe Return to the Rails

As the end of pandemic restrictions gain speed, so will the return to rail transportation. Whether for commerce or commuting, most major American cities—and plenty of outlying areas—depend on a safe and reliable rail network. One of the keys to that safety is pneumatic systems on trains, as noted in a recent Hydraulic & Pneumatics article.

“Since the air brake was invented more than 150 years ago, compressed air has played a major role in the railway industry. Today, pneumatic components are used in a wide range of applications in both passenger and freight vehicles,” notes article author Frank Gevers, director of railway, fluid control and pneumatics at Emerson. “For successful product development, OEMs must implement pneumatic applications that meet the highest safety requirements and industry demands. 

“Robust pneumatic railway components set the benchmark for quality and functionality. They meet the exceptionally high
