Small scale robots have the potential to offer many unique applications for minimally invasive surgery, sensing and drug delivery in healthcare as well as more generally for microfactories and as scientific tools. They are precise end-effectors that can manipulate objects with a high degree of accuracy. Many surgical and on-chip tasks can be performed by manipulating these robots in their dedicated environments.
