Product Overview

Microbotics is an emerging and booming area with many and various applications, including in fields such as industrial/manufacturing robotics, medical robotics, and laboratory instrumentation.

Microrobotics for Micromanipulation presents for the first time, in detail, a treatment of the field of robitics dedicated to handling objects of micrometer dimensions. At these dimensions, the behavior of objects is significantly different from the better known, larger scales, which leads to implementation techniques that can be radically different from the more commonly used solutions.

This book details the behaviors of objects at the micrometer scale and provides robotics solutions that are suitable, in terms of actuators, grippers, manipulators, environmental perception, and microtechnology. Worked examples are included in the book-enabling engineers, students and researchers to familiarize themselves with this emerging area and to contribute to its development.

Nicolas Chaillet is Professor at the University of Franche-ComtT and conducts research at the Institute Femtso-ST. His research interests are in microrobotics and more generally in micromechatronics fields, particularly in micromanipulation and microassembly, microgrippers, smart materials, modeling and control of microactuators.

StTphane RTgnier is Professor at the Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIR), Pierre and Marie Curie University, Paris, France. He has been head of the micromanipulation team at ISIR since 2001. His research interests are focused on micro and nanomanipulation, tele-operation and haptic feedback at the nanoscale, micromechatronics and biological cell characterization.
