Miniature actuators are the critical components in the robotic applications with high intelligence, high mobility and small scales. Among various types of actuators, linear actuators show advantages in many aspects. A miniature short stroke PM tubular linear actuator for the micro robotic applications is presented in this paper. The actuator is deliberately designed based on the optimal force capability and a proper sensorless control scheme is developed for the driving of the actuator.
