Micro-robotics / MEMS (MicroElectroMechanical Systems). The focus of this research project is the development of a distributed micro-robotic system where the size of the entire device is in the order of micro-meters (10-6 meters).
Our goal is to achieve a self-reconfigurable robotic system, where a group of simple robotic devices can change their configuration (shape) based on a provided global control signal, and their interaction with the environment. This is a new assembly paradigm we call Directed Micro-scale Self-Assembly (DMSA).
