From conception to realization, Microrobotics: Methods and Applications covers all aspects of miniaturized systems that physically interact and manipulate objects at the microscale. It provides a solid understanding of this multidisciplinary field, which combines areas of materials science, mechanical engineering, and applied physics. Requiring no formal prerequisites, the book begins by introducing basic results from the strength of materials, mechanics, and applied physics. After forming this foundation, the author describes various flexure systems, actuators, and sensors as well as fabrication techniques relevant for microrobots. He then explores applications of microrobotics in medicine, materials science, and other areas. Numerous exercises encourage hands-on appreciation of the content and ancillary materials are available on a CD-ROM. Focusing on design-oriented multidisciplinary activities, this text describes how to implement various methods for solving microrobotics problems and designing mechanical systems at the microscale. With a broad overview of the current state of the art from research and industry perspectives, the book envisions the future of microrobotics and explores its potential contributions to technology.

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) involve deeply integrated, tightly coupled computational and physical components. These systems, spanning multiple scientific and technological domains, are highly complex and pose several fundamental challenges. They are also critically important to society’s advancement and security. The design and deployment of the adaptable, reliable CPS of tomorrow requires the development of a basic science foundation, synergistically drawing on various branches of engineering, mathematics, computer science, and domain specific knowledge. This book brings together 19 invited papers presented at the Workshop on Control of Cyber-Physical Systems, hosted by the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at The Johns Hopkins University in March 2013. It highlights the central role of control theory and systems thinking in developing the theory of CPS, in addressing the challenges of cyber-trust and cyber-security, and in advancing emerging cyber-physical applications ranging from smart grids to smart buildings, cars and robotic systems.
