This workshop will reinforce the connections of the TG on Miniaturised Robotics with two other communities:
• the EPoSS platform dealing with Smart Systems Integration;
• the Laboratory Robotics Topic Group.
Smart systems provide elementary components which can be integrated in robot developing new robotics capabilities in several fields such as manufacturing and biomedical fields. Laboratory robotics deal with automation in life sciences. Miniaturised robots may provide micro-assembly methods to build new highly integrated smart systems or micro-robotic systems useful in life sciences laboratories.
