However, a new research states that the field of robotics can use softer materials for production of robots in order to make them more flexible without hampering their functionality. This can be done by replacing specially created embedded sensors with the traditionally used rigid sensors, through the usage of modern cutting-edge machine learning technologies that allow researchers to create such designs.

As automation in increasingly becoming popular in almost every industry, the combination of this form of machine learning with robotics would help produce better robotic devices which consist of a better behavioural control of the robots as well as improved design and main functions.

In this rapidly evolving world, technology needs to be constantly updated and the devices should be able to adapt themselves and work accordingly. This new research would allow the robots to function in the most efficient manner possible and easily navigate through as well as perform all the required tasks in the best way.

The research is being conducted by the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, University of Tokyo in Japan. Robots made out of soft material generally need to be taken care of since they are highly prone to stress and damage as compared to their counterparts with more rigid materials. However, if such a robot made out of soft material such as rubber, is incorporated with carbon in order to make its varying resistance easily readable, it can have better outcomes, as per the researchers involved in this study. Moreover, the laser-displacement sensor contains high accuracy even during various test conditions which might show positive results while creating this technology.
