In this work, we demonstrate the ability of soft microrobotic sperms to manipulate non-magnetic microbeads in two-dimensional space. First, we model the interaction between the microrobotic sperm and microbeads using the resistive-force theory (RFT). This RFT-based model enables us to predict the maximum payload a soft microrobotic sperm can manipulate at different actuation frequencies. Second, we demonstrate manipulation of the microbeads using microrobotic sperm under the influence of… CONTINUE READING
