New robots without batteries draw energy from external chemical bonds

James H. Pikul, assistant professor of mechanical engineering and applied mechanics at Penn Engineering develops robots that move without a battery, powered by the chemical bonds of the environment.

The authors of the new work have created a robot on wheels that can navigate the environment without a computer.

This is a kind of rudimentary form of navigation, which is sharpened for the search for an energy source: the robot automatically heads towards metal surfaces.

If you change the space around the robot according to certain algorithms of its movement, then you can perform various logical operations based on the presence or absence of its power source.

By understanding the types of signals that the robot picks up, researchers can develop various ways to incorporate them into the robot’s design to achieve the desired type of navigation.
