'Soft' Robots From MIT and Harvard Open Up Possibilities for New Class of Bots

'Soft' Robots From MIT and Harvard Open Up Possibilities for New Class of Bots | Education Technology | Scoop.it

The science of soft robotics is making big leaps as teams from MIT and Harvard have recently shown off new prototypes, hoping to challenge the way.

 

MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, led by director Daniela Rus, already has a portfolio of untraditional robots, inspired by the movements of living creatures. Their robots fly like falcons, perch like pigeons, and swim like swordfish. This week, at the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, a new robot was unveiled which moves like a snake through a pipe-like environment without the need for a human operator.

Bettina Ascaino's insight:

“I want to challenge the notion that robots have to look or act a certain way”, says Andrew Marchese, a doctoral candidate at MIT’s CSAIL who worked on the project.
