Soft Robotics Podcast- Abdon Pena-Francesch “Can we design biodegradable soft material heals instantly and maintain its mechanical properties functionalities?”

Can we design biodegradable soft material heals instantly and maintain its mechanical properties functionalities? Interesting discussion With Abdon Pena-Francesch, Assistant Professor at University of Michigan. In this episode, Abdon shares his research on self-healing materials for soft machines, what are the challenges designing biodegradable self-healing materials. What are the scenarios of materials external and internal continuum damages and why modeling is challenging? What is the ideal sensor for detecting damages and health monitoring?
