Untethered Microrobots: Design, Control And Biomedicine


As a young technology, micro-nano robots have shown amazing potential in biomedical and other fields in recent years. It has the ability to play a role in hard-to-reach spaces, including living organisms, and it has great potential in non-invasive or minimally invasive diagnosis. This seminar will introduce the developments in soft microrobots and microrobotic swarms, including their design, automatic control and biomedical applications.
