Robotics & Automation Society: Distinguished Lecture @ UH: Dr MinJun Kim “Fantastic Voyage: Tiny Robots in Bodily Fluidic Environments”

March 26, 2018 @ 9:55 am - 11:00 am CDT

Co-sponsored by: Aaron T. Becker How can corkscrew nanorobots drill through blocked arteries? Surgeons will soon be deploying armies of tiny robots to perform microsurgeries throughout the body. The realization of reconfigurable modular nano/microrobots could aid drug delivery and microsurgery by allowing a single system to navigate diverse environments and perform multiple tasks. So far, nano/microrobotic systems are limited by insufficient versatility; for instance, helical shapes commonly used for magnetic swimmers cannot effectively assemble and disassemble into different size and…
