The largest robotics meeting in the world will welcome a one-day workshop on origami-based robots on May 29th, 2023 in London.

The workshop will be a unique chance to introduce in-depth discussions on origami-based design into IEEE ICRA conference. To stimulate exchanges, several communities will be gathered from the fields of micro-nano robotics, mechanism design and also soft robotics. It will be a pleasure to have you participating in this workshop, for which internationally-renowned speakers are already confirmed, including Biruta Kresling, creator among others of the Kresling tower origami. Interactivity will be favored with an introductory hands-on session and interactive sessions where prototypes are welcome.

Please visit the workshop website for all details: 

Organizing committee: Stephane Viollet, Pierre Renaud, Kanty Rabenorosoa, Jamie Paik, Cynthia Sung and Mirko Kovac

The aim of the OrigaBot project is precisely to develop a brand-new class of reconfigurable origami-based structures for the design of multi-modal locomotion robots. The OrigaBot will feature a morphing frame enabling it to change its span and perform both terrestrial and aerial locomotion efficiently. Combining ground and aerial locomotion constitutes a smart energetic trade-off for navigating in a cluttered environment and saving energy. In response to the urgent need for robust robots that can be used in field missions, the OrigaBot project provides a unique opportunity for developing remotely piloted multi-modal terrestrial and aerial robots with an innovative actuated origami that can fold up on the spot.
