Materials Challenges in Soft Robotics

Date: April 28, 2021

Time: 08:00AM - 09:30AM

You must be registered to participate!

With the latest developments in materials science, a new technological trend that uses using soft materials for creating advanced mechanical and electronic systems with sophisticated features is gaining momentum. This emerging field has pioneering novel applications especially in robotics and electronics. The April 2021 issue of MRS Bulletin focuses on soft robotics, exploring the challenges and opportunities for revolutionizing robotics and for exploring new materials and fabrication schemes.

This webinar will present two talks by authors and a guest editor of the MRS Bulletin issue. An interactive Q&A will be held with each of the speakers following their talks.

Talk Presentations:

  • Bioinspired approaches and materials for soft robotics
    Cecilia Laschi, National University of Singapore
    Talk begins at 8:23
      
  • Surface molding of multi-stimuli-responsive microgel actuators
    Stephen Morin, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
    Talk begins at 49:15
