Abstract Scope Ionic Polymer Metal Composites (IPMC) have the ability to produce versatile types of soft deformations including bending and twisting. This allows for the actuator to be used in wearables where precise movement may be needed. To make the IPMC a smart actuator in wearables, gallium-indium (GaIn) alloy is added to the actuator, adding a self-sensing feature to IPMC. The liquid alloy can be used as a strain sensor within the IPMC, giving the actuator information to better understand its own movements to accurately reach the desired motion and location. An initial prototype was designed and fabricated using PDMS. In this talk, the fundamental principles and challenges of this particular type of actuator and sensor are presented. Also, recent advancement of IPMC in wearables is discussed.
