Abstract

This work introduces to Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) using in Robotics as actuators. We investigated a quadruped platform actuated by SMAs which act with variable elasticity. SMAs ought to prove necessary forces for all gaits. The main purpose of this study; determine the necessary for all actuation region and specify the essential actuation.
