Abstrakt

We present our progress on the design and implementation of Vacuubes, a set of robotic modules that exploit vacuum as adhesive force to form and hold structures. We use a first prototype to perform basic experiments that demonstrate the vacuum sealing capabilities of the modules, as well as the
proper actuation of a valve designed to propagate vacuum between two of these modules. Based on these results, we expect that vacuum is a viable connection principle for any modular technology where easy attachment and detachment is required.
