Topic: Nitinol reaction using touch sensor (Read 267 times) previous topic - next topic

Hi - I am currently doing my honours in product design and need some help with my final project! Essentially I am trying to create a prototype using Nitinol that changes shape when someone interacts with it.

For this prototype I need to be able to make my Nitinol wire (40 degree temp change) contract/change shape when someone touches a touch sensor. I am not sure how to physically set this up using my Arduino or what coding to use.

Could anyone please advise?
Thanks!

I think if you pass current through Nitinol it will change shape.  Figure how much current you need first and then compare that to the capabilities of Arduino.
