• PNAs: autonomous intelligent twisting soft robot capable of walking mazes and turning sand dunes

    1948 British neurobiologist William middot; Walter invented the first generation of autonomous mechanical and electronic robots. The mobile robot can use simple light or touch sensors to control the motor and act as a neuron brain to sense and avoid obstacles. In recent years, the wireless soft robot based on active soft materials has attracted extensive attention of researchers. For example, liquid crystal elastomer and magnetic elastomer soft robots can realize various complex movements under the drive and control of external light or magnetic field. However, due to being controlled…
