Abstract: Robot arms equipped with an additional network of masses and springs enable a facilitation of control by the exploitation of morphological properties. Typically, these mass-spring networks are being generated randomly. This approach comes in its basic form unhandy when the network should obey specific constraints, such as spring lengths, angles between springs or, e.g., the physical expansion range of the network. We present an approach of emulating a growth process on the basis of L-systems. Therefore, we have developed a simulation environment to define L-systems and instructions to translate the produced strings into mass-spring networks.
