Soft continuum robots exhibit access and manipulation capabilities in constrained and cluttered environments not achievable by traditional robots. However, navigation of these robots can be difficult due to the kinematics of these devices. Here we describe the design, modeling, and control of a soft continuum robot with a tip extension degree of freedom. This design enables extremely simple navigation of the robot through decoupled steering and forward movement. To navigate to a destination, the robot is steered to point at the destination and the extension degree of freedom is used to reach it. Movement of the tip is always in the direction tangent to the end of the robot's backbone, independent of the shape of the rest of the backbone. Steering occurs by inflating multiple series pneumatic artificial muscles arranged radially around the backbone and extending along the robot's whole length, while extension is implemented using pneumatically driven tip eversion. We present models and experimentally verify the growing robot kinematics. Control of the growing robot is demonstrated using an eye-in-hand visual servo control law that enables growth and steering of the robot to designated locations.
