Beschreibung

This book presents the technological basics and applications of small-scale (mm to sub-mm in length-scales) soft robots and devices, written for researchers in both academia and industry. Author Jaeyoun Kim presents technological motivations, enabling factors, and examples in an inter-linked fashion, making it easy for readers to understand and explore how microscale soft robots are a solution to researchers in search of technological platforms for safe, human-friendly biomedical devices. A compact and timely introduction, this book summarizes not only the enabling factors for soft robots and MEMS devices, but also provides a survey of progress in the field and looks to the future in terms of the material, design, and application aspects this technology demonstrates.

Summarizes the technological basis and issues for the nascent field of microscale soft robotics, surveys its research progress, and presents the outlook for its future development

Emphasizes and clarifies the motivations for microscale soft robots and devices, as well as their corresponding enabling technologies

Explores the applications of microscale soft robots and devices as minimally invasive and biomimetic medical devices
