The proliferation of soft robotics research worldwide has brought substantial achievements in terms of principles, models, technologies, techniques, and prototypes of soft robots. Such achievements are reviewed here in terms of the abilities that they provide robots that were not possible before. An analysis of the evolution of this field shows how, after a fewpioneeringworks in the years 2009 to 2012, breakthrough resultswere obtainedby taking seminal technological and scientific challenges… CONTINUE READING
