A New Micro-Actuator Applied for capsule Robot Locomotion and Drug Release

Project Details


This project focuses on the design, analysis, and testing of new active actuators for potential applications in capsule robots (CR).

A novel driving concept is developed for these actuators, utilizing collision impact forces generated within the capsule. This approach eliminates the need for additional mechanical structures within the CR or micro-motors inside the capsule to generate the required driving force. The achieved driving force significantly surpasses that of conventional actuators used in CR.

The achieved results demonstrate the ease of controlling stroke length and movement speed by solely adjusting the amplitude and frequency of the excitation current.
