Paper Abstract

Recent developments in the field of smart motors in Germany are presented in this paper. The paper describes the different working principles of the motors. The most important working principles are the traveling wave principle and those of vibrating beams or plates. The motors may be designed for rotational motion as well as for a linear motion. The major purpose of present investigations is to get more theoretical insight into the different parts of the motors, for example the friction layer and to realize motors with improved efficiency, power and torques. Other theoretical research focus on developing models of the interaction between the electrical and the mechanical parts of these motors in order to use them directly in controlled systems.
