We propose a microrobotic platform for single motile microorganism observation and investigation. The platform utilizes a high-speed online vision sensor (robotic eye) that tracks (locks onto) a single microorganism under a microscope with a relatively high magnification ratio. The future integration potential of a stimulation system using microtools (robotic hands) is also demonstrated. Successful long-time tracking for more than 30 min, and mechanical stimulation of a freely swimming microorganism was achieved in a 2D environment utilizing a microfluidic chip. View this paper
