Fast and Accurate Pick-and-Place Automation with Nanorobots

Edeler, Christoph and Jasper, Daniel and Diederichs, Claas and Fatikow, Sergej
In recent years, performance and reliability of micro actuators and subsidiary sensors increased. Currently, flexible and comparatively fast pick-and-place processes can be realized with mobile nanorobots. Two tethered mobile nanorobots are the basis for this demonstration setup, offering a total of seven degrees of freedom. Two benchmark tests are defined to measure the capabilities of the fully automated setup combining dynamic actuators, accurate sensors, control and automation. The benchmark tests evaluate the performance of such micro- and nanohandling systems considering both the positioning accuracy and the handling speed.
