Abstract: The rapid advancement in microrobotic systems in recent years for the medical applications, as well as human scale magnetic navigation systems equipped with the medical monitoring (magnetic particle imaging (MPI), fast MRI, and X-ray) lead to the precise control of individual and collective (microswarms) control of microrobots. However, predicting the nonlinear complex behaviour of the navigation systems remained as an open challenge. In this talk I will present the recent monitoring schemes (e. g. MPI), the practical actuation schemes, and most recent predictive models for microrobotics control.

Short Bio: From 2015 to 2019, Dr Hoshiar worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher in GNU (S. Korea), DGIST-ETH (S. Korea), and University of Leeds (UK). Currently, he is an Assistant professor (Lecturer) in mechatronics and robotics at the University of Essex, faculty of computer science and electronic engineering (CSEE), and a member of robotics and embedded system research (RES) group. He is working on medical small-scale robots and published 32 peer-reviewed journal papers in micro/nanorobotics, including Soft Robotics, IEEE Transaction on Mechatronics, IEEE Robotics and Automation letters, Nanoscale. His research interests include medical micro/nanorobots, magnetic manipulation, electromagnetic actuation systems, magnetic particle imaging (MPI) systems, swarm microrobotics, soft magnetic miniature robots and soft small-scale robots. The works he published received the Society for Cardiac Robotic Navigation awards in 2019 and 2021.
