Robotic wearables are going to become more sophisticated as are more advanced sensors are introduced to the market. Researchers at Wyss Institute at Harvard University have developed soft & stretchy fabric-based robot sensors that move and flex with the human body. They can be used to make smart robotic apparel in the future.
The technology consists of a thin sheet of silicone with two layers of silver-plated conductive fabric. The sensor measures the change in capacitance to register movement.
