Description:Robotic micromanipulation systems have been widely used in ultrahigh-precision manipulation and assembly applications with micro-/nanometer accuracy. Majority of available robotic micromanipulation devices only provide position sensing and control. The lack of force-sensing ability hinders further applications of the systems. In modern biomedical sciences, there is an increasing demand for automated micromanipulation systems with force sensing and control capabilities. It is challenging to develop compliant micro-/nanomanipulation devices with both large motion range and compact footprint size along with force sensors. This presentation reports our recent research progress on design and development of force-sensing compliant micromanipulation systems for robotic micromanipulation applications. Moreover, the future work on relevant topics will be discussed.
