BPN735: Autonomous Microrobotic Systems

Project ID BPN735
Website
Start Date Fri 2014-Jan-31 14:37:35

Abstract Recent advances in MEMS technology have enabled a new generation of microrobotic engineering applications. This project aims at developing novel micro-scale actuation and transduction mechanisms for mobility. A motivation behind this research is the development of truly mobile, high resolution, and autonomous sensor networks. One of the key elements towards autonomy is the fusion of these mobility mechanisms with energy harvesting capabilities, including high-voltage solar arrays fabricated via novel processes. In addition, ultra-low power control and communications platforms must be designed with the constraints of a microrobotic system in mind.
