Soft & Stretchy Fabric-based Robot Sensors

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.
