MIT researchers have developed soft sensors using conductive silicone sheets. As the sensorized arm stretches and compresses, electrical resistance is converted to an output voltage that’s used as a signal correlating to that movement. Credit: Ryan L. Truby, MIT CSAIL
Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology announced that they have enabled a soft robotic arm to understand its configuration in 3D space using only motion and position data from its own “sensorized” skin.
