This paper presents the overall design and implementation of a microactuator which is wirelessly powered and driven by electropermanent magnets. Electropermanent magnet based actuation allows for the actuator to consume power merely during actuation with zero power consumption in between actuations. This has significantly reduced the energy requirement of… CONTINUE READING
