Control of Shape Memory Alloy Actuators with a Neuro-fuzzy Feedforward Model Element

  title={Control of Shape Memory Alloy Actuators with a Neuro-fuzzy Feedforward Model Element},
  author={Akihiko Kumagai and Tien-I Liu and Paul Hozian},
  journal={J. Intelligent Manufacturing},
This paper describes development of a motion controller for Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) actuators using a dynamic model generated by a neuro-fuzzy inference system. Using SMA actuators, it would be possible to design miniature mechanisms for a variety of applications including miniature robots for micro manufacturing. Today SMA is used for valves, latches, and locks, which are automatically activated by heat. However it has not been used as a motion control device due to difficulty in the… CONTINUE READING
