Overview

Soft Robotics (SoRo) is an innovative peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the science and engineering of soft materials in mobile machines. The Journal breaks new ground as the first to answer the urgent need for research on robotic technology that can safely interact with living systems and function in complex natural or human-built environments.

Multidisciplinary in scope, SoRo combines advances in biomedical engineering, biomechanics, mathematical modeling, biopolymer chemistry, computer science, and tissue engineering to provide comprehensive coverage of new approaches to constructing devices that can undergo dramatic changes in shape and size in order to adapt to various environments. This new technology delivers vital applications for a variety of purposes, including surgery, assistive healthcare devices, search and rescue in emergency situations, space instrument repair, mine detection, and more.

Soft Robotics (SoRo) coverage includes:

  • Soft material creation, characterization, and modeling
  • Flexible and transient electronics
  • Soft actuators and sensors
  • Control and simulation of highly deformable structures
  • Biomechanics and control of soft animals and tissues
  • Biohybrid devices and living machines
  • Design and fabrication of conformable machines

SoRo is under the editorial leadership of Editor-in-Chief Barry A. Trimmer, PhD, Henry Bromfield Pearson Professor of Natural Sciences and Director of the Neuromechanics and Biomimetic Devices Laboratory at Tufts University.

Audience: Biomedical engineers, biomechanical engineers, biopolymer chemists, computer scientists, electronic engineers, optical engineers, neuromechanical designers and engineers, and tissue engineers, among others
