We propose to design and implement novel origami-inspired mechanisms that are embedded with actuators. The key research goal is to contribute to establishing fundamental design components that can be used to develop various active engineering systems inspired by origami designs, and provide concrete demonstrations of how origami designs can be exploited to provide a scalable mechanism that can function as a useful active system, not just a structure. To achieve the goal, we tried to develop multilateral topics related to origami-inspired mechanisms which includes pattern design as well as fabrication and actuation. We suggest novel design methods that solve specific design requirement, but our theme and design methodology can be applied as design component to various applications. The research has three main thrusts 1. Innovative design and fabrication of origami-inspired functional mechanisms. 2. Novel embedded actuation system for origami-inspired mechanisms 3. Integration of the developed mechanisms and actuation to practical application.
