Shape-shifting modular robot is more than the sum of its parts

Cornell and Pennsylvania Universities develop modular robot system that can perceive its surroundings and autonomously assume different shapes suited to the task it has been given No matter how useful a general-purpose robot can be, they have inherent limitations. They can be cumbersome and can often only accomplish a single type of task. A team […] The post Reconfigurable modular robot can change shape to achieve tasks appeared first on The Engineer.
