Materials As Machines

Wednesday, August 21, 2024 @ 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

[]Join the IEEE Toronto Instrumentation & Measurement – Robotics & Automation Joint Chapter for a talk on the Materials As Machines, presented by Dr. Irina Garces from Carleton University. Wednesday, August 21, 2024 @ 4:30 – 5:30 PM Abstract: The Materials as Machines Lab specializes in developing systems and devices geared toward producing material systems that can adapt or be tailored to variable operating conditions. Our focus lies in the development of smart material systems applicable across a spectrum of fields, including deployable actuators, manipulators, soft robotics, wearables, and biomedical applications. Leveraging additive manufacturing, these innovative material systems offer practical, cost-effective solutions for engineering challenges. By integrating sensors into multifunctional actuating materials, we create dynamic structures and assemblies capable of self-sensing and adaptation. In this presentation, Dr. Garces will present their ongoing research on self-sensing actuation, tailored additive manufacturing, and explore the transformative potential of this technology in prosthetics, and examine its diverse applications across industries.
