Flexible sensors and an artificial intelligence model tell deformable robots how their bodies are positioned in a 3D environment.
Optimizing soft robots to perform specific tasks is a huge computational problem, but a new model can help.
Discovery could enable longer-lasting and better-functioning devices — including pacemakers, breast implants, biosensors, and drug delivery devices.
Made of silicone rubber, CSAIL’s “SoFi” could enable a closer study of aquatic life.
A bio-inspired gel material developed at MIT could help engineers control movements of soft robots.
