Electro-ActiveJacobs, Will Wilson, Emma D. Assaf, Tareq Rossiter, Jonathan Dodd, Tony J. Porrill, John Anderson, Sean R. Polymers (EAPs) are a rapidly developing actuation technology in the field of soft robotics. These soft actuators have the potential to replace existing hard actuator technologies for many applications, combining desirable features such as relatively large actuation strain, low mass, high response speed and compliance [1]. The characteristics of EAPs have drawn comparison to biological muscle [2], generating interest from the robotics community because of the potential for emulating the many versatile ways muscle is used in nature: as motors, brakes, springs and struts.
