Abstract

Manipulation, orientation and handling of components, subparts and finished products is an essential element of any industrial process, which attracts substantial portion of resources and infrastructure. Classic manipulation, e.g. robot arms, is not always efficient at the micro-scale and suffers in terms of scaleability. We are proposing an alternative concept of manipulation based on an array of actuators. The proposed system rely on the natural concepts of scaleability and parallelism: ciliary motion and excitable media control.
