Title: Biomimetic robots using EAP as artificial muscles - progress and challenges
Authors: Bar-Cohen, Yoseph
Keywords: EAP
electroactive polymer
artificial muscles
Issue Date: May-2004
Publisher: Pasadena, CA : Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2004.
Citation: 2nd Conference on Artificial Muscles - Biomimetic System Engineering, Kansai, Japan, May 20, 2004
Abstract: Biology offers a great model for emulation in areas ranging from tools, computational algorithms, materials science, mechanisms and information technology. In recent years, the field of biomimetics, namely mimicking biology, has blossomed with significant advances enabling the reverse engineering of many animals' functions and implementation of some of these capabilities.
