On May 5th of this year, we received a patent. The patent number is 10,995,779, and it is titled Hydraulically Amplified Self-healing Electrostatic Actuators. It covers the fundamental shape, structure, and function of Artimus Robotics’ HASEL actuator technology.
The patent was assigned to The Regents of the University of Colorado Boulder. Artimus Robotics Inc has an exclusive worldwide license to use this IP, which is one of the main benefits of seeking a patent. Other benefits include preventing others from copying, manufacturing, or selling the technology.
Obtaining a patent involves detailing the process of creating the technology, the blueprints, and more, and Artimus Robotics has passed an exciting milestone by receiving its first awarded patent. With several others in the provisional and non-provisional stage, we are excited to put our patented IP to work and commercialize the HASEL actuator technology.
About Artimus Robotics
Artimus Robotics designs and manufactures soft electric actuators. The technology was inspired by nature (muscles) and spun out of the University of Colorado. HASEL (Hydraulically Amplified Self-healing ELectrostatic) actuator technology operates when electrostatic forces are applied to a flexible polymer pouch and dielectric liquid to drive shape change in a soft structure. These principles can be applied to achieve a contracting motion, expanding motion, or other complex deformations. For more information, please visit Artimus Robotics or contact email@example.com.
