A New Way to Make Robotic Sensors, Based on How the Body Heals Itself

Maria J. Danford

Influenced by the body’s pure wound-healing approach, Yale robotics researchers have designed a safer and more quickly way to manufacture sensors on to comfortable, deformable structures.

The process, designed in the lab of Rebecca Kramer-Bottiglio, the John J. Lee Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering & Components Science, can be used to sensorize comfortable robots and wearables. The effects had been a short while ago published in Science Robotics.

A lot of comfortable robotic programs call for integrated sensors that can extend and conform alongside surface area contours. Above the last 10 years, composite elements designed from polymer and conductive

What the Coronavirus Does to the Body

Maria J. Danford

As the novel coronavirus infection acknowledged as COVID-19 carries on to spread throughout the world — the amount of confirmed conditions in the U.S. crossed 15,000 on Friday — governments have created extraordinary initiatives to restrict the pandemic’s all round attain.  

But there is also substantially uncertainty, and a truthful sum of unscientific speculation, about the virus and its effects on people’s bodies. And some of COVID-19’s claimed symptoms, like fever, cough and shortness of breath, overlap with individuals of day to day ailments like strep throat, flu and the widespread cold.
