Fully plastic actuator through layer-by-layer casting with ionic-liquid-based bucky gel.
TLDR
This work reports the first dry actuator that can be fabricated simply through layer-by-layer casting with “bucky gel”, a breakthrough in the design of miniaturized mechanical devices.
A new type of fish-like underwater microrobot
This paper presents a new prototype model of an underwater fish-like microrobot utilizing ionic conducting polymer film (ICPF) actuator as the servo actuator to realize swimming motion with three

Position control of fishing line artificial muscles (coiled polymer actuators) from nylon thread
Recently, fishing line artificial muscle has been developed and is paid much attention due to the properties such as large contraction, light weight and extremely low cost. Typical fishing line
A snake-like swimming robot using IPMC actuator/sensor
TLDR
This paper constructed a snake-like swimming robot using IPMC actuator, and verified swimming motion based on numerical simulation and experiments and verified the realization of swimming motion by feedback of the sensor signal.
Reduction of the stress-relaxation of IPMC actuators by a fluctuating input and with a cooperative control
In practical applications, stress-relaxation phenomenon is not preferable feature of IPMC (ionic polymer-metal composite) actuators. In this study, we propose a control method using two (or more)
