Analysis and Experiments on the Force Capabilities of Centripetal-Force-Actuated Microrobotic Platforms

Abstract

This paper studies the capabilities of a microrobotic platform, driven by vibrating motors, to generate and impart micromanipulation forces of desired type and magnitude. First, an analysis is carried out on the nature of the actuation forces of the motion mechanism of the platform. The results demonstrate that the oscillating nature of these forces does… (More)
