What areas of robotics research are you most excited about in 2019?

I recently visited two Harvard labs focused on robotics research and was fascinated by the exciting innovation underway in the field. One of the teams I met with developed an exosuit to help restore movement for people with spinal cord injuries or movement disorders. For healthy people, these exosuits could ease the physical burdens experienced by firefighters and soldiers.

Another team wants to create a new type of robot that is entirely soft—with no rigid components. They recently developed a soft robotic arm for use in deep-sea research. I left eager to learn more about robotics research, and would love to know what areas you’re most excited about.
