Electroadhesive Gripper Gives Robots Sticky Hands

Electroadhesive Gripper Gives Robots Sticky Hands

Using electricity in a robot hand to pick up objects! This new technology is called electroadhesive gripping, and it allows robots to grip a wide array of objects and surfaces. Traditionally, robots have had a hard time gripping objects because there are few good universal grippers. Most objects are very different from each other, with different textures, sizes, and physical properties. Using electroadhesion, grippers may be designed to pick up many more objects than previous robot grippers could.
