Soft robotics is an emerging field with promising engineering methods that replicate biological behaviours. Soft robots aim to obtain a delicate interaction with their environment and be adaptable to different situations.
Imitating complex human organs with soft-bodied simulators helps us to advance our knowledge of the human body and discover new diseases, such as stomach dysrhythmia. A robot that replicates such illnesses can help us to identify a faster solution for patients suffering from these conditions.
This talk will introduce the soft robotics field and show examples of robots that emulate human organs using embodied intelligence in their morphology for simpler control systems and continuous actuation behaviour.
Refreshments will be served from 18:30.
