Magnetic actuation of ultra-compliant micro robotic mechanisms


This work presents highly flexible elastomer and silicon micro robotic mechanisms actuated using embedded permanent magnets manipulated by an external magnetic field. The mechanisms are fabricated using a process to incorporate elastomer hinges and other features into silicon MEMS, and a method for embedding small magnets via press-fit into an elastomer… (More)
