Newswise: Spider-Man-Style Robotic Graspers Defy Gravity

Spider-Man-Style Robotic Graspers Defy Gravity

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Traditional methods of vacuum suction and previous vacuum suction devices cannot maintain suction on rough surfaces due to vacuum leakage, which leads to suction failure. Researchers Xin Li and Kaige Shi developed a zero-pressure difference method to enhance the development of vacuum suction units. Their method overcame leakage limitations by using a high-speed rotating water ring between the surface and suction cup to maintain the vacuum. They discuss their work in Physics of Fluids.
