Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper reports preliminary experiments in the development of our Augmented Micromanipulation System using the JHU "Steady Hand" cooperative robot system to augment single cell manipulation tasks. The need for robotic augmentation of biomanipulatuon tasks is discussed. The JHU "Steady-Hand" robot configuration for cell manipulation is reported. Augmentation strategies for stable cooperative insertion of a micropipette in a mouse embryo are developed and preliminary experiments validating these strategies are presented. These preliminary experiments demonstrate promise of cooperative robotic augmentation in single cell manipulation tasks.
