Summary

The objective of this course is to expose students to the fundamentals of robotics at small scale. This includes a focus on physical laws that predominate at the nano and microscale, technologies for fabricating small devices, bioinspired design and control paradigms, and applications of the field.

Content

The course will cover the micro/nanoscale physics, sensors, actuators, manipulators, power sources, interfacing, robotic design, and control issues. After providing the basic background, we will explore the current trends in the literature, discuss select case studies, and develop conceptual novel solutions for outstanding issues. The course will be divided into the following sections:

Keywords

multiphysics, design and manufacturing of small scale machinery, wireless power transmission, bioinspired engineering, principles of biological actuation, mobile robots
