Piezoelectric Self-Sensing Technique for Tweezer Style End-effector
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-12)
This paper presents the application of a piezoelectric self-sensing technique based on discharged current to robotic tweezers incorporating a rhombus strain amplification mechanism driven by serially connected piezoelectric ...
Motor Task Planning for Neuromuscular Function Tests using an Individual Muscle Control Technique
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-06)
A functionality test at the level of individual muscles may be effective for neuromuscular function tests. This paper proposes a novel computational method for neuromuscular function test planning using an individual muscle ...
Large Effective-Strain Piezoelectric Actuators Using Nested Cellular Architecture with Exponential Strain Amplification Mechanisms
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-10)
Design and analysis of piezoelectric actuators having over 20% effective strain using an exponential strain amplification mechanism are presented in this paper. Piezoelectric ceramic material, such as lead zirconate titanate ...
