Recent work in magnetically actuated microscale robots for biomedical or microfluidic applications has resulted in magnetic actuation systems that can remotely command precise five-degree-of-freedom control of magnetic devices. This paper presents a new type of actuation system, which uses an array of rotating permanent magnets to generate the same level of control over untethered microscale devices with the potential for increased field and gradient strength and minimal heat generation.
