WP1 Dielectric Elastomers

Objective: Two major research areas are planned for the research program in DEAP:
(1) Novel actuators and architectures for miniaturized soft robotics, including the use of position/shape self-sensing with no additional external sensors;
(2) Coherent and collaborative development of artificial muscle materials, their fabrication technologies and applications, R&D of electrode materials, microfabrication related issues, lifetime and reliability, technological readiness.
