Industry 4.0 is characterized by a significant increase in digitalisation and networking of products, value chains and business models. This is boosted by the use of ubiquitous sensors, data collection and sophisticated methods to analyse massive amounts of data. Therefore, the necessity for integrated sensor-actuator components and their integration into networks as so called cyber-physical systems increases. Shape Memory Alloys are multifunctional materials which allow the integration of actuator and sensor functions in a single component. Shape Memory Actuators have seen an increase in use recently but mid to long term experience especially required for product and service development is still limited. Therefore, a joint application of Industry 4.0 methods and Shape Memory Actuators is reasonable. This paper provides an overview on challenges in the use of Shape Memory Actuators in context of Industry 4.0.
