Dear robotics researchers and practitioners,

we are currently investigating faults in elastic actuators that are 
applied in robotics at TU Darmstadt, Germany. To explore which faults 
are the most common ones, how relevant faults are in general, and what 
are possible countermeasures, we prepared a 5-minute questionnaire that 
is found here:


We kindly invite all researchers and practitioners that work with 
elastically actuated robots to participate in this short study. This as 
well as forwarding this invitation to others would be an important 
support for my research.

Please note that we appreciate feedback from the academic as well as the 
industry domain.

Best regards and thank you
Philipp Beckerle
