A new actuation principle which permits omnidirectional steering for a swimming robot using a magnetic resonance imaging scanner is presented. The robot fish is made of a ferromagnetic head and a flexible tail. It is actuated by transverse oscillating magnetic gradients. The swimming performances of the robot fish are studied for varying tail length as well(More)
Magnetic Resonance Navigation (MRN) aims at navigating artificial or synthetic untethered micro-devices and microrobots using an upgraded clinical Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) system. For larger MRI-based navigated entities, past experiments proved that software-based upgrades only were sufficient. But for microrobots with an overall diameter of only a(More)
