Micro-mobile mechanism


Microscopic mobile mechanisms composed of elements such as actuators, controllers, and energy sources.

Micro-mobile mechanisms consist of actuators, energy sources, and transmission components for movement. Each element must also be microscopic in scale because the overall size of these mechanisms is microscopic. While piezoelectric elements, shape memory alloys, electro-static force, or electromagnetic force are used in actuators, the major issue is whether the energy is supplied from a built-in battery or an external source. Applications are expected to include maintenance machines for the pipes of power plants.
