Project Description

Recent rapid development on Milli and Microscale robotics has provided a massive impact on palm-top autonomy that are applicable to various fields. We are developing fabrication techniques of micro origami-robots and remote magnetic control methods that are to be applied to paradigm shifting manufacturing approaches and in-vivo biomedical applications. Our research focuses are: (1) Micro robot design, fabrication and control, and (2) Remote magnetic control. The goal of this program is to develop mechanisms and systems that supports sensing, computing, and action of micro/milli-robots. Upon our successes to develop a series of miniature robots that can be remotely controlled, we will make them more autonomous to become able to locally make decisions, such as inside the human body.
