Between materials and robots

Dr Anton Souslov

Abstract: We think of robots and materials as being distinct areas of science, with exciting and world-changing advances in both areas. A recent research direction aims to bridge the gap between these two concepts by developing so-called mechanical metamaterials. These robotic materials are composed of simple, repeated parts put together in a designed pattern, giving them a decentralised and modular architecture. I will talk about exciting developments in designing materials that move themselves and how advances in fundamental science may lead to future technologies.
