Successes

SoftWorm II Structure

SoftWorm II is a peristaltically-driven robot using a 3D printed mesh for an external structure. Each truss can rotate freely about a pin and there are four degrees of freedom at every intersection. The robot moves by contracting or expanding actuators along the length to simulate the undulation and movement of an earthworm. Students Hillary Bunnelle, Maria Lorkowski, and Ronald Leibach worked on this research project in the CWRU Biologically Inspired Robotics Laboratory.

Hive Workstation Concepts

The Hive Workstation was designed by Daniel Cuffaro, Chair of the Industrial Design Department at the Cleveland Institute of Art. A prototype made in think[box] during the early phases of design helped project partners visualize the design, which has sold nationwide to higher-education institutions and businesses.

Ecospinners Fuel Cell Bicycle

EcoSpinners is designing an integrated and programmable electric bike with a proprietary fuel cell range extender. The bike’s power pack is a hybrid of advanced lithium-ion polymer battery and liquid-fueled fuel cell. The critical part of the bike design is a low-cost fuel cell, running on non-polluting and recyclable liquid fuel that allows an increase in range without increasing the cost of the power pack.
