Inception Drive

Inception Drive is an ultra-compact, infinitely variable transmission that promises to dramatically increase efficiency for robotics systems and allow for safer human-robot interaction. With its high torque and power density, Inception Drive is small enough to replace fixed-ratio transmissions in robots, enabling energy savings of up to 50 percent in many applications. Furthermore, the transmission’s reversible output can allow for the reduction of the number of motors required in a robot.
