Abstract

Several different kinds of prototypes were built in the Älytarkkuus project. All the prototypes had actuators based on functional materials. Only those functional materials that were already on the market were chosen. In this project, Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) actuators and Ceramic Multilayer Actuators (CMA) were studied while they were integrated into the innovative constructions designed by VTT. Four prototypes are presented here; one of them is in the patent process. They are all excellent examples of how motion and force can be altered if functional materials are being used.
