  • Pain, though unpleasant, is an important warning signal for humans and can protect someone from serious injury.
  • Under light pain, the robot experiences mild discomfort and retracts until the contact is over.
  • To make them smarter, researchers are teaching robots to feel pain
  • The robot retracts quicker and at a greater distance under moderate pain and goes into a passive mode under severe pain, which improves the safety of the robot.
  • It builds on previous research, where scientists built a robot arm that avoided collisions with people.

How can you make a robot more intelligent? Teach it to feel pain. Pain, though unpleasant, is an important warning signal for humans and can protect someone from serious injury. It’s for this reason that researchers from Leibniz University in Hannover, Germany have developed an artificial nervous system for robots, teaching them to feel pain and quickly react…
