This project has moved since 1st December 2004 to the newly founded OFFIS R&D Division MN (ROBOSEM).
Within the ROBOSEM project, a nanohandling robot system for a desktop SEM station will be developed, with a powerful sensory support and very high flexibility. To enable powerful sensor feedback, a robot sensor system consisting of video cameras and tactile-/force microsensors integrated into the manipulators will be developed. To ensure the real-time processing of sensor data, a PC-based parallel computer system will be developed and special techniques of data processing, especially neuro-fuzzy based ones, implemented. Three prototypes will be build up and evaluated: microassembly in a SEM, nanotesting in a SEM and cell handling for genomic.
