Robotic systems have the potential to aid and complement healthcare in an effort to spark novel interdisciplinary initiatives between medical, engineering, and science communities.
A soft robotic actuator harnesses the elastic snap‐through and snap‐back instability of a rubber balloon to realize rapid, large deformations.
Kirigami transformations give rise to mechanical actuation of a soft robot upon light illumination.
Researchers from Taiwan and Japan have developed a low-cost, intelligent soft robotic finger using paper electronics.
Using a micro-3D-printing technique, researchers were able to print detailed robotic parts that are smaller than the diameter of a human hair and display color-expressing features for microrobot tracking and identification.
Controlling the probability of a series of seemingly random events is the key to mimicking the human brain to optimize neuromorphic learning.
A new, flexible, and self-powered sensor made by magnetoelectric materials can convert mechanical stimuli to electrical signals for robots with a “soft touch”.
To mimic the fluid and versatile movement of soft-bodied animals, soft robots require their own “muscles” to function.
Hello HAL, do you read me HAL?
Will artificial intelligence expand and enhance its teaching prowess to the point where it can replace the professor in his or her traditional role?
