Event Details

micro scale robotMicro-scale mobile robots can physically access small spaces in a versatile and non-invasive manner. Such microrobots under 1 mm in size have potential unique applications for object manipulation, local sensing and cargo delivery in healthcare, microfluidics and advanced materials fabrication. These devices are powered and controlled remotely using externally-applied magnetic fields for motion in 2D and 3D. This talk will introduce our experimental work in micro-manipulation using single and teams of such devices. The photo is a tiny claw, less than a millimetre in size, contains magnets that allow it to grasp and release objects in response to changes in external magnetic fields.

Eric Diller received his BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH. He received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, where he continued as a postdoctoral researcher before joining the U of T Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering in 2014.

His current work focuses on fabrication and control relating to remote actuation of micro-scale devices using magnetic fields, micro-scale robotic manipulation, smart materials, and swimming at small size scales. He received first place in the NIST Mobile Microrobotics Microassembly Challenge in 2012 in St. Paul, MN and received the G. Sundback Graduate Fellowship at Carnegie Mellon University.

The price of the event is $15 per person and refreshments will be provided. Friends are welcome and networking encouraged!
