The presented work addresses the implementation of electromagnetic stimulation with feedback control. Preliminary testing is conducted as a proof of principle to evaluate the feasibility of the experimental system for future in vitro experiments on mice muscle. Therefore, this study focuses on applying a Proportional-Integral controller to carry out contractions of a BioMetal Fiber based on set trajectories specified to the control algorithm. The experimental setup captures the instantaneous position of the BioMetal Fiber, which is used as feedback and modulated via high frequency electromagnetic fields. Consequently, the effectiveness of the controller and the two-coil electromagnetic system are evaluated to develop improved strategies for system tracking.
