Final Report - MICROPADS (New micro-robotic systems featuring piezoelectric adaptive microstructures for sensing and actuating, with associated embedded control)

Project ID: 219412
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

This is the final report of the project MICROPADS, which aimed to develop innovative centi / millimetre active structures integrating on the same piezoelectric material both the actuating and the sensing functions, with control laws enabling the achievement of micro / nanometric resolution and high bandwidth (some hundreds of Hz).

The report focuses on the project's objectives and the methodology followed to achieve each one of them. It also provides figures showing the developed hardware.
