O futuro de Soft Robotics: uma revisão bibliográfica / The future of Soft Robotics: a bibliographic review

Paulo Roberto Carvalho dos Santos, Guilherme Henrique Alves da Silva, Juliana Saragiotto Silva


This study seeks to explain a new theme that has a potential of great impact in the future. Soft robots are robots that, because they are soft and not limited by their axes, can go beyond how rigid robots work. The objective of this study is to present a review of the literature on soft robots. The literature shows little research on these robots, presenting difficulties mainly in the research of sensors and materials to be used in their construction. Despite the difficulties, the increase of research with this approach will have great impacts, mainly in the medical area.
