qbActuators are based on variable stiffness actuation and present a wealth of potential uses due to their naturalness of motion, energy efficiency, speed, robustness and task adaptability. The qbMove is a single actuator, proposed in Robotic Kit comprised of multiple qbMoves and connector pieces for assembly and configuration in different robots, e.g. a snake, a hexapod, or a humanoid.
Our VSA, whose operation is similar to a pair of muscles, have the shape of cubes to facilitate modular assembly based on the needs of the end user. The qbmove is a single actuator, proposed in its Advanced version and sold in Robotic Kit that allow different assembly configurations (4 and 6 DOFs robotic arms, snake, hexapod, delta and humanoid).
The qbmove Advanced represents the best of the state of the art of the VSA actuators and is proposed for the educational sector to research institutes and universities.
