Multi-Scale Manipulation, Automation, and Assembly

Filed in Research by on September 26, 2014 0 Comments • views: 1155

Micro- and meso-scale automation is a popular research topic today, coinciding with trends to manufacture smaller and cheaper products at faster rates. Some microassembly cells presented in the literature utilize multiple manipulators but they are generally each used for individual operations and do not cooperate to manipulate the same part at the same time and/or […]

Micro-force Sensing Mobile Microrobots (μFMMs)

Filed in Research by on September 26, 2014 0 Comments • views: 1739

This project is on the creation of a novel class of magnetically-controlled, mobile microrobots with two-dimensional vision-based micro-force sensing end-effectors. By combining advanced mobile manipulation microrobots with a MEMS-based micro-force sensor, a novel, transformative tool for future advancements in mechanobiology and automated biomanipulation will result. The end-effectors of the mobile microbots consist of micro-compliant mechanisms […]

Mobile Microrobot Platform for Advanced Manufacturing Applications

Filed in Research by on September 26, 2014 0 Comments • views: 1069

The goal of this research thrust is to create a flexible, micro-scale additive manufacturing platform utilizing a team of untethered micro-scale robots and modular, multifunctional building blocks to create smart micro-devices and structures. Externally applied magnetic fields are commonly used for the power and actuation of individual magnetic mobile microrobots. However, in order to achieve […]

Autonomous Micro Aerial Vehicles

Filed in Research by on September 25, 2014 • views: 1015

Autonomous Micro Aerial Vehicles We are interested in the design and control of autonomous micro aerial vehicles in unknown, cluttered environments. The applications for such MAVs range from search-and-rescue, security, surveillance, mapping, and remote sensing. Traditional vertical take-off and landing micro aerial vehicles are generally underactuated, i.e., equipped with fewer actuators than degrees-of-freedom. As a […]
