Historical Overview

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in the development of microscale robotic systems. Researchers have explored numerous ways and techniques to provide capable systems for microscale tasks. Many microscale systems have been biologically inspired or based. For effective microscale systems, it is critical to understand cellular mechanics and its interaction with low Reynolds number environments. Cellular swimming has led researchers to mimic biological motors such as flagella for bacteria-inspired microrobots. Others have used biological phenomena and external stimuli for microscale robotic systems such as magnetotactic bacteria. Using bacteria as well as other microorganisms as a power source for a microrobot ...
