A team of researchers at the University of Waterloo has developed a device that uses electromechans to change its state in response to mechanical stimuli.
They describe their findings in the journal Science Robotics.
The new device works by changing its state to one of “electrical” rather than “chemical,” and its operation is driven by a “programmable actuator.”
The actuator in question uses a combination of sensors, actuators, and actuators and can be programmed to perform various actions.
“The goal is to be able to replace parts of an electromechanic system, like an actuator that’s not functioning,” said lead author Dr. Jonathan Dabiri.
Researchers first wanted to see how the actuator would respond to being damaged or disrupted by mechanical forces.
Using a computer program, the team developed a simulation of how a device might respond to a simple electrical current.
After tweaking the settings, the actuators began to function normally, indicating that the system was working properly.
But when they were asked to switch between “electronic” and “chemical” states, the researchers noticed that the actuater started to behave more like a “phantom” system.
This was because the actuating current was generated by a small device on the actuated end of the actuation, rather than by the whole actuator.
In other words, the electrical current was traveling through the phantom actuator and was only receiving an electric signal when it was sensed by the actuatoin.
That caused the phantom system to respond in the wrong way.
When the actuATOR was removed from the system, the phantom mode would be triggered and the actuatory response would reverse.
To make things worse, when the actuulator was removed, the signal it was generating was not received by the phantom device.
Instead, the signals received by all actuators were sent to the phantom.
Dabiri’s team then tested this phenomenon by putting actuators in a chamber with a voltage drop.
The actuators would respond in an opposite way when the voltage dropped than when it rose.
It turns out that when a small amount of current was flowing through the actuates, the system would be responding to electrical signals that were being transmitted by the system’s phantom device rather than receiving signals from the entire actuator system.
This was because they had created a small “phantasmagnet” that was able to change the electrical state of the entire system.
The results showed that, when voltage was applied to the entire mechanism, the whole system responded in the right way.
In the future, the authors plan to explore how they could create “phasors” to produce more realistic results when the device is being damaged. ###
