Design of a flexible finger actuated by Shape memory alloy (SMA)
Research Groups 04-Automazione e Robotica
Thesis type EXPERIMENTAL AND THEORETICAL
Description The shape memory alloy represent a class of materials with unusual mechanical properties: if deformed at a low temperature (room temperature), recover the original shape when heated. The heating can be obtained with an electric current, obtaining sophisticated devices which can be used as actuators.
This work aimes at the design and realization of a prototype of a flexible finger actuated by SMA wires.
Previous work in this area made by the proponents is the starting point for the development of new ideas, also with the help of additive manufacturing.
