DISTRIBUTED CONTROL ARCHITECTURE FOR AUTOMATED NANOHANDLING

Christian Stolle

Abstract

New distributed control architecture for micro- and nanohandling cells is presented. As a modular system it is designed to handle micro- and nanorobotic automation tasks at semi- up to full automation level. The architecture includes different visual sensors as there are scanning electron microscopes (SEM) and CCD cameras for position tracking as well as non-optical force, temperature, etc. sensors for environmental control. It allows usage of multiple nanorobots in parallel for combined autonomous fabrication tasks. The system provides a unified framework for mobile platforms and linear actors.
