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
