Soft Milli-robots

Project description

Soft milli-robots take deep dive into precision agriculture

The world’s first energy-autonomous swimming millirobot may be tiny (less than 1 cm long), but it’s expected to have a huge impact in the field of robotics and in precision agriculture. Firstly, it will be powered by ambient light only. Also, the millirobot (which looks like a flatworm in the ocean) can be programmed to continuously monitor both indoors and outdoors. Developed by the EU-funded SOMIRO project, the millirobot will be tested and optimised. Coordinated by the Division of Microsystem Technology of Uppsala University, the project has mobilised nine partners, from academia and industry, from six European countries. Industry partners will use cutting-edge assembly technologies that can scale up to production volumes.
