This novel approach enables fabrication of complex and customised soft robot components, reducing time, effort and errors.

Researchers from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) have developed novel techniques, known as Automated Fibre Embedding (AFE), to produce complex fibre/silicone composite structures for soft robotics applications. Their work was published in IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters.
