Self-Sensing Control for Soft-Material Actuators Based on Dielectric Elastomers

Hoffstadt, Thorben ; Maas, Jürgen (2019-12-13)

Due to their energy density and softness that are comparable to human muscles dielectric elastomer (DE) transducers are well-suited for soft-robotic applications. This kind of transducer combines actuator and sensor functionality within one transducer so that no external senors to measure the deformation or to detect collisions are required. Within this contribution we present a novel self-sens...
