Robotallic : a locomotive robot using smart-materials as actuators

a micro robot that uses Smart material as actuators, named Robotallic, that locomotes and can be controlled with a computer to enable practical applications. I used an inexpensive, commercially available Smart material instead of specially prepared one that are not easily accessible to most robotic engineers enjoy.

This is an Alpha version of the report as it will be changing over time, please keep that in mind while reading.

Microrobots can perform various functions by interacting with the
surroundings for medical, military, industrial, or environmental purposes. One of the major challenges faced by microrobotic engineering is a lack of micromotors/stepper motors to drive robots, thus making them unable to generate motion, Among many attempts to address this issue, I pay special attention to smart materials/materials because it is easy to generate motions and deformations with a very simple structure, unlike Robots relying on the complex of motor systems, or Actuators…etc.
