A transparent artificial muscle to enable camouflaging in soft robots

A transparent artificial muscle to enable camouflaging in soft robots

The ability to become transparent is a considerable evolutionary advantage, as it allows animals to blend in with their environment, avoid predators and mask their movements. Robots with similar capabilities could be of great value for a number of applications, for instance, aiding surveillance and research that involves observing animals in their natural habitat.

Robotic gripper with soft, sensitive fingers can handle cables with unprecedented dexterity

Robotic gripper with soft, sensitive fingers can handle cables with unprecedented dexterity

For humans, it can be challenging to manipulate thin flexible objects like ropes, wires, or cables. But if these problems are hard for humans, they are nearly impossible for robots. As a cable slides between the fingers, its shape is constantly changing, and the robot’s fingers must be constantly sensing and adjusting the cable’s position and motion.
