All The big questions

When will robots be able to repair themselves?

It might take less time than you think. Read our answer below.

Robots can break all the time. In fact, they do break all the time. If it's not the hardware, it must be the software that is broken. Sometimes everything that couldn’t go wrong, goes wrong. Then you have to try to explain what happened and end up staying up all night fixing the bit that was not supposed to break.

SHERO (Self Healing soft RObotics) comes to the rescue by trying and solve at least some of the physical robot breaking problems. They use structural materials that can autonomously heal themselves over and over again. SHERO even got funded by the European Commission. So yes: in the future, robots will be able to heal themselves. And we are just as excited as you!
