Stimuli-responsive Actuating Materials for Micro-robotics examines the latest stimuli-responsive actuating materials with high potential for applications in microrobotics. The material science, functionalities, performance, and synthesis of these materials are reviewed. Then, the common enabling technologies for material and signal integration such as 3/4D printing and interface engineering, and chemo-mechanics modeling of the materials are discussed. Finally, there is a chapter that looks at the prospects of materials for micro-robotics, including case studies for specific applications such as self-folding origami robots and robots for micro-surgery. This book is suitable for researchers and practitioners working in the subject areas of materials science and engineering.
