In ROBOSEM, a nanohandling robot system for a desktop SEM station will be developed, with a powerful sensory support and very high flexibility. The robots' modular design and their simple installation in an SEM will allow an easy conversion of the station for different applications. For telemanipulation mode, a haptic interface will be developed and a virtual reality representation of the working environment investigated. A robot with sensor feedback from video cameras and force microsensors will be developed. To ensure real-time processing of sensor data, a PC-based parallel computer system will be developed and special techniques of data processing, implemented. Three prototypes will be build up and evaluated: microassembly in an SEM, nanotesting in an SEM and cell handling for genomics. The main innovation of ROBOSEM is the first-time development of a flexible robot-based nanohandling SEM desktop station.
