Independent control of microrobots is a cardinal challenge for manipulation at micro/nano scale. In this paper, we design and assemble an electromagnetic setup to overcome some of the major obstacles in the independent control of microrobots. The demanding magnetic requirements are met by the presented experimental testbed that is able to produce magnetic fields and gradients of, respectively, 160 mT and 3.6 T/m at the center of the workspace. Through the design process of this testbed, we… Expand
