Tentative title:

Rise of the medical microrobotic systems: sensing, actuation, and control



In recent years there were a rapid advancement in microrobotic systems for medical applications. Developments in human scale electromagnetic systems for actuation in one hand, and advancements on magnetic particle imaging (MPI), fast MRI, and X-ray monitoring systems on the other, lead to a more practical control for medical microrobots. However, swarm control of microrobots under a global actuation imposes a saviour limitation in their application. In this talk I will present the algorithms and possible approaches to control microrobots in swarm. 



Ali Kafash Hoshiar received his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the Tehran Science and Research University, in 2014. From 2015 to 2019, he worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher in GNU (S. Korea), DGIST-ETH (S. Korea), and University of Leeds (UK). Currently, he is a lecturer in University of Essex working on medical small-scale robots. His current research interests includes medical Micro/Nanorobots, electromagnetic actuation systems, magnetic particle imaging (MPI) systems, swarm microrobotics, and soft continuum microrobots.
