The advent of small-scale robots holds immense potential for revolutionizing various industries, particularly in the domains of surgery and operations within confined spaces that are currently inaccessible to conventional tools. However, their tethered nature and dependence on external power sources impede their progress. To surmount these challenges, the integration of batteries into these diminutive robots emerges as a promising solution.

Just like what this article said, it is a solution to make an integration of batteries in small-scale robots, focusing on “hard” and “soft” approaches. But how,

The “soft” integration emphasizes the need for flexible and deformable battery technologies that seamlessly integrate with soft robotic systems.
