Abstract

This paper describes the morphing omnidirectional gripper which is able to grasp various objects with low melting point alloy, functional fluid, dilatancy fluid, and so on. The deformable part of the gripper changes its shape by covering all direction of objects and makes the contacting area higher. This time, we especially focus on the "Hot Ice" phenomena to realize higher grasping motion. The basic performance of fluid of CH3COONa has been observed.
