‘Squishy’ Motors and Wheels Give Soft Robots a New Ride

Robotsquishyvehiclehigh-res.jpg

A small, squishy vehicle equipped with soft wheels rolls over rough terrain and runs under water. Future versions of the versatile vehicle might be suitable for search and rescue missions after disasters, deep space and planet exploration, and manipulating objects during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), according to its creators at Rutgers University. Their most important innovation is a soft motor that provides torque without bending or extending its housing.
