Microbiorobotics is a new engineering discipline that inherently
involves a multidisciplinary approach (mechanical engineering,
cellular biology, mathematical modeling, control systems, synthetic
biology, etc). Building robotics system in the micro scale is an
engineering task that has resulted in many important applications,
ranging from micromanufacturing techniques to cellular
manipulation. However, it is also a very challenging engineering
task. One of the reasons is because many engineering ideas and
principles that are used in larger scales do not scale well to the
micro-scale. For example, locomotion principles in a fluid do not
function in the same way, and the use of rotational motors is
impractical because of the difficulty of building of the required
Microrobotics is an area that is acknowledged to have massive
potential in applications from medicine to manufacturing. This book
introduces an inter-disciplinary readership to the toolkit that
micro-organisms offer to micro-engineering.
The design of robots, sensors and actuators faces a range of
techology challenges at the micro-scale. This book shows how
biological techniques and materials can be used to meet these
World-class multi-disciplanry editors and contributors leverage
insights from engineering, mathematical modeling and the life
sciences - creating a novel toolkit for microrobotics.
