New 3D – Printing Method Gives Soft Robots Sense of Touch

ZDNET Robotics, March 7, 2018 – Researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering have figured out how to make soft robots with embedded touch sensing.

Soft robots built from highly-compliant materials are being investigated for a variety of tasks, including invasive surgery, exoskeleton suits, and for a theoretical class of safe industrial robotic pickersTo continue reading the article, click here.
