New materials and advances in making electronic skin for interactive robots


The Journal focuses on electronic skin, novel materials, tactile sensing, and robotics. Advanced mechanics is an interdisciplinary exploration region at the interface of software engineering a lot. Mechanical technology includes plan, development, activity, and utilization of robots. The objective of mechanical technology is to plan keen machines that can help and help people in their everyday lives and guard everybody. Flexible electronics has huge potential to bring revolution in robotics and prosthetics as well as to bring about the next big evolution in electronics industry. In robotics and related applications, it is expected to revolutionize the way with which machines interact with humans, real-world objects and the environment. For example, the conformable electronic or tactile skin on robot’s body, enabled by advances in flexible electronics, will allow safe robotic interaction during physical contact of robot with various objects. Developing a conformable, bendable and stretchable electronic system requires distributing electronics over large non-planar surfaces and movable components. The current research focus in this direction is marked by the use of novel materials or by the smart engineering of the traditional materials to develop new sensors, electronics on substrates that can be wrapped around curved surfaces. Attempts are being made to achieve flexibility/stretch ability in e-skin while retaining a reliable operation. This review provides insight into various materials that have been used in the development of flexible electronics primarily for e-skin applications.
