Summary form only given. Today, the mobility and manipulation capabilities of robots are tightly coupled to the hardware of the system. Since robot architectures are fixed from the conception of the design, both physical and functional capabilities of each robot are limited to its physical architecture. Soft robots address this limitation of conventional robots and we regard robotic origamis (Robogamis) as soft robots that could transform their body shape and functionality to interact and adapt to the unknown environment. In this talk, I will address the specific challenges involved with the building of Robogamis and Reconfigurable Robotics Lab's research goal to provide robust solutions to meet the engineering challenges needed to demonstrate a capable end-to-end Robogami system that starts with specifications and delivers a fully functional robot.
