Abstract

The recent development of innovative organic materials with intriguing features such as their flexibility, lightness, low cost and easy manufacturability, has driven researchers to develop innovative smart applications based on such kind of materials. In this work, all-organic electromechanical transducers, with both sensing and acting capabilities are proposed. The actuator and sensor models have been identified by using a grey box approach, as a function of membrane geometric parameters. The obtained models have been validated through comparison among estimated and experimental data.
