Development of ICPF Actuated Underwater Microrobots

  title={Development of ICPF Actuated Underwater Microrobots},
  author={Xiu-Fen Ye and Bao-feng Gao and Shu-Xiang Guo and Li-Quan Wang},
It is our target to develop underwater microrobots for medical and industrial applications. This kind of underwater microrobots should have the characteristics of flexibility, good response and safety. Its structure should be simple and it can be driven by low voltage and produces no pollution or noise. The low actuating voltage and quick bending responses of Ionic Conducting Polymer Film (ICPF) are considered very useful and attractive for constructing various types of actuators and sensors… CONTINUE READING
