Researchers from Harvard's John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have developed a platform that allows soft robots to sense movement, pressure, touch, and temperature. Robots have been developed to fight fires, ski and even sew. One of the only things robots have been unable to do is sense and respond to stimuli. Now, however, researchers from Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have developed a platform that allows soft robots to used embedded sensors to sense movement, pressure, touch and temperature.
