The use of origami-based mechanisms in the engineering field is growing as their advantages are better understood. Origami-based mechanisms have the advantage of being lightweight, compact, and their ability to transform from a flat sheet into complex three-dimensional structures makes them a source of inspiration to meet design challenges. A...

In recent times, there has been a growing interest in spending extended amounts of time in outer space. To enable these endeavors, living and storage spaces will have to be much larger than current technologies can transport and set up in space. An interesting solution to this problem is the usage of a deployable structure that occupies a small...

This project explores the potential of a material system based on SMAs that generates haptic feedback for Visually Impaired People (VIPs). Since VIPs rely more than others on tactile information, there is a need for more natural and unintrusive haptic devices as the commonly used electromechanical actuations are often perceived as intrusive and...

Curved crease origami (CCO) is a newer, interesting field in origami mechanisms. The surfaces on CCO can be bent to initiate folding, thus allowing for the use of planar bending actuation. In this work, the use of more or less of the available actuation surface of CCO is explored. This is done by heating a bilayer material made of paper and...
