Soft robotics differ from traditional robots made from rigid parts, and powered by joints and motors. It is a growing field of research with products such as soft robot grippers already used in factories to sort and pack food like tomatoes or baked goods. Now engineers at Cornell University have developed the technology to create a touch-sensitive robotic hand. The hand uses an array of optical detectors to sense shape and texture through touch, capabilities that have been tested on the hand’s ability to determine a tomato’s ripeness. The prototype soft prosthetic hand is equipped with a system of photosensors…
