For the first time, University of Würzburg physicists have been successful in propelling micrometer-sized drones using just light and exerting clear-cut control. These microdrones are considerably smaller in comparison to red blood cells.
For the first time, researchers have shown that molecular robots can handle the delivery of cargo by utilizing a swarming strategy, realizing a transport efficiency that is five times more than that of solo robots.
A herd of antelope feeds peacefully on a meadow. Suddenly, a lion shows up, and the herd flees. But how do they manage to do so collectively? Konstanz physicist Chun-Jen Chen and Professor Clemens Bechinger, a member of the Cluster of Excellence "Centre for the Advanced Study of Collective Behaviour," asked themselves how animals must behave in order to initiate an efficient flight response.
A recent study by researchers at the Beijing Institute of Technology encapsulated the latest advancements in the use of smart biohybrid micro- and nanorobots for human medical applications.
As demonstrated by the famous physicist Richard Feynman, developing molecular microrobots that simulate the capabilities of living organisms seems to be a dream of nanotechnology.
A collaborative research team headed by Professor Hongsoo Choi from DGIST and Professor Sung Won Kim from Seoul St. Mary’s Hospital created a magnetically powered, human nuclear transfer stem cells (hNTSC)-based microrobot that can be delivered into the brain tissue in a minimally invasive way through the intranasal pathway.
MicroAI™, the pioneer in edge-native artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) products, today announced MicroAI Launchpad™, a quick start development and deployment tool.
It is difficult to treat diseases in the central nervous system, yet new study questions whether it is viable to allow a tiny MANiAC carrying drug to move through the nervous system to facilitate treatment.
Researchers mixed oil drops with water containing a detergent-like substance and found that it was viable to produce artificial swimmers capable of swimming separately and also harness energy to recharge.
University of Colorado Boulder researchers have discovered that minuscule, self-propelled particles called "nanoswimmers" can escape from mazes as much as 20 times faster than other, passive particles, paving the way for their use in everything from industrial clean-ups to medication delivery.
