Read e-book online Biomimetic Robotic Artificial Muscles PDF

By Kwang Jin Kim,Xiaobo Tan,Hyouk Ryeol Choi,David Pugal

Biomimetic robot synthetic Muscles offers a entire up to date evaluate of various kinds of electroactive fabrics with a view of utilizing them as biomimetic man made muscle tissues. the aim of the publication is to supply a concentrated, in-depth, but self-contained therapy of contemporary advances made in numerous promising EAP fabrics. specifically, ionic polymer-metal composites, conjugated polymers, and dielectric elastomers are thought of.

Manufacturing, actual characterization, modeling, and regulate of the fabrics are offered. specifically, the publication adopts a platforms point of view to combine fresh advancements in fabric processing, actuator layout, control-oriented modeling, and gadget and robot purposes. whereas the focus is at the new advancements in those matters, an attempt has been made in the course of the e-book to supply the reader with normal, easy information regarding the fabrics ahead of going into extra complex issues. consequently, the e-book is particularly a lot self-contained and anticipated to be available for a reader who doesn't have history in EAPs.

Based at the strong primary wisdom and the flexibility of the fabrics, a number of promising biomimetic and robot functions such robot fish propelled by means of an IPMC tail, an IPMC strength harvester, an IPMC-based valveless pump, a conjugated polymer petal-driven micropump, and a man-made elastomer actuator-enabled robot finger are demonstrated.
