Abstract: In the last years, we have been working on exploring alternative actuation technologies for the future service and personal robots. These shall allow designing lighter and safer robots, devoid of conventional mechanical transmission mechanisms i.e. motor-less and gear-less robots. Here, we summarise our work with Shape Memory Alloys. We show that, despite their known limitations, by finding suitable niches of application, dedicated mechatronics design, and ad-hoc control strategies, SMAs can effectively be used as an alternative actuation technology for robotic systems.
