Launched earlier this month, the NSW Smart Sensing Network (NSSN) is a collaboration between the NSW government, universities and industry to research and develop small, smart devices that can be used in applications such as water quality, wearables, biomedical, wildlife and air sensing.
These sensor-enabled, advanced robots are now able to undertake more complicated tasks and are being deployed into industrial, commercial, domestic, logistic and other sectors where robot penetration was previously limited, with the market for robotic vision and force sensing alone expected to reach over $16.1 billion by 2027.
Most robots achieve grasping and tactile sensing through motorised means, which can be excessively bulky and rigid. A Cornell group has devised a way for a soft robot to feel its surroundings internally, in much the same way humans do.
