— We demonstrate the closed-loop control of a mag-netotactic bacterium (MTB), i.e., Magnetospirillum magneto-tacticum, within a micro-fabricated maze using a magnetic-based manipulation system. The effect of the channel wall on the motion of the MTB is experimentally analyzed. This analysis is done by comparing the characteristics of the transient-and(More)
— Magnetic drug carriers such as microrobots and paramagnetic microparticles have the potential to increase the therapeutic indices by selectively targeting the diseased tissue. These magnetic microobjects can be controlled using magnetic-based manipulation systems. In this study, we analyze a minimum input motion control to minimize the currents at each of(More)
