The Robotic Instruments group researches miniaturized robotics, focusing on advancing robotic manipulation for small-scale objects. We develop manipulation technologies utilizing diverse physical interaction methods, including contact, acoustic and magnetic fields, interfacial forces, and fluidic flows. Our interdisciplinary research integrates physics, mechatronics, automation, and machine learning, tackling challenges in both dextrous manipulation and noncontact manipulation. Our research spans fundamental methodologies to practical applications in biomedicine, materials, and industrial technologies. Notable applications of our robotic instruments include biomimetic tools for threading fibers, advanced scientific instruments for analyzing surface wetting properties and protein viscosity, innovative methods for targeted drug delivery in cancer research, and tools for semiconductor and optoelectronic device integration.
