Contribute to the Soft Robotics Toolkit

Contributions to the Soft Robotics Toolkit allow us to continue our work to create a comprehensive and accessible resource around soft robotics. By hosting this open-source library, researchers and students alike can use the opportunity to promote and share their work within the growing community. Submissions to the site are accepted in the form of our annual competition and through contributions from researchers and professionals in the field.
