Planar Microassembly by Parallel Actuation of MEMS Microrobots (Microassembly Video)
Technical Report Number
Movie of a representative microassembly experiment using devices from species 1,3,4 and 5, recorded through an optical microscope. The robots are initially arranged along the corners of a rectangle with sides 1 by 0.9 mm. The assembly experiment is divided into three stages. During stage 1, devices 4 and 5 dock together to form the initial stable shape. In stage 2, device 3 docks with the initial stable shape, while during stage 3, device 1 docks with the stable shape, forming the final assembly.
