The optimal use of vision as part of the manipulation of micron-sized objects
This project concerns the development and integration of a sub-millimeter objects manipulation setup and will take part in a CTI project named “Manipulating Microscale Objects with Nanoscale Precision”. On the way of manipulating microscale objects, we need to build a first setup adapted for sub-millimeter objects in order to be able to perform experiences and to validate some assumptions and choices. In the Laboratoire de Systèmes Robotiques (LSRO), ultra high precision parallel robots are developed and, in particular, the Delta3 a micromanipulator that presents three degrees of freedom (XYZ) and has a range of 4mm. This robot might be used within this project. The goal of this project is to develop an interface between vision system, robot and user that will allow measuring the position repeatability of different microscale objects during a manipulation task.
