Summer school in Microrobotics and Self-assembly for hybrid MEMS

Today, emerging highly complex micro-devices with applications in mechanics,electronics, biological engineering, microfluidics and IT request ultra precision manufacturing processes.

The general context of the summer school concerns the micromanipulation and assembly of such complex microsystems. From the state-of-the-art, integration technologies for heterogeneous microsystems are based on Microrobotics or Self-assembly approaches. Microrobotics relies on high precision robotic pick-and-place machines and machine vision. Self-assembly technology deals with high throughput parallel stochastic process. Hybrid innovative approaches actually emerge, which combine autonomy and precision of self-alignment and the flexibility of robotic technology. This Summer School addresses particularly researchers, engineers and PhD students who want to acquire or to improve their skills for the micromanipulation and micro-assembly of microsystem devices.

This summer school is connected to the European FP6 project HYDROMEL (contract number 26622)

The summer school is organized by the FEMTO-ST Institute/Automatic Control and Micro-Mechatronic Systems Department
