Researchers Design ‘Soft’ Robots that Can Move on Their Own

Robots Could be Used in Medicine, Rescue and Defense

 

If Star Wars’ R2-D2 is your idea of a robot, think again. Researchers led by a University of Houston engineer have reported a new class of soft robot, composed of ultrathin sensing, actuating electronics and temperature-sensitive artificial muscle that can adapt to the environment and crawl, similar to the movement of an inchworm or caterpillar.
