The most complete existing book about how muscle wires are applied to robotics today.

Shape-memory alloys (SMA) are in demand because of their high power/weight ratio. Therefore, they are the best choice for mobile robotics. This book is a thorough study of the state of the art, providing a complete overview of the concepts and practical examples of implementation that can be performed in a university laboratory. Using my pseudonym, I wrote this easy-to-read book for students, professors, professionals, and even robotics amateurs.
