Dielectric elastomers are novel smart materials, promising innovative solutions in different application areas due to their specific properties. In recent years the potential of this material class was shown in many scientific works and proven in laboratory demonstrators. Now the trend goes towards using them as actuator and sensor elements in serial products. A new design approach promises robust and multifunctional components. By means of numerical methods the design was analyzed, optimized and realized in a functional demonstrator.
