The Rotary One-to-Many Project is aimed at designing and realizing an innovative novel actuator capable of emulating human muscle dexterity. This technology utilizes the “One-to-Many” (OTM) concept, which allows a single artificial actuator to store energy in the form of elastic potential energy and drive multiple independently actuated and controlled degrees of freedom (DoF). This technology may prove critical for systems with many DoF like soft-robotics Exomusculature as well as many others. The feasibility of the concept was initially proven using the Linear OTM system, after which, the Rotary OTM system was designed, prototyped, and successfully tested.
