Performance of the conducting polymer actuators (CPAs) are affected by material uncertainties, operating conditions and time of operation. The same size CPAs may have different actuation capabilities, which can also degrade over the course of operation. For accurate and repeatable position tracking, the uncertainties and variations in the actuator dynamics have to be carefully addressed to achieve a desirable control performance.
