     View Summary

    Hydrogelactuators,comprisinggelsthatconvertexternalstimuliintomechanical motion for actuation, are attracting attention for their promising applications, such as in robotics. The driving force is the absorption or release of water or another solvent, which results in swelling and shrinking motions, leading in turn to more complex functionalities. However, practical hydrogel actuators that canbecontrolledlocally,suchasonesthatallowlocalactuationaroundthejoints in rigid-bodied robots, do not exist. Herein, the driving target of a thermoresponsive hydrogel, poly( N -isopropyl acrylamide), is integrated with the stimulation module using a liquid metal. The stimulation module provides heat as an externalstimulustothehydrogelactuator.Themotionoftheactuatoristriggered by the heat supplied by an ultrasoft hydrogel coil, with liquid metal surrounding thedrivingtarget.Theheatgeneratedbycurrentflowingthroughtheliquidmetal changes the temperature only around the desired part of the actuator, which enables the electrical control of an individual part of the hydrogel actuator. The concept of integrating the driving target and stimulator is expected to facilitate functional movementofactuatorsandexpand therangeofpotentialapplications of hydrogels.

     View Summary

    <p>Recently, demand for micromanipulation has been increasing in various fields, such as MEMS, integrated electronic devices, and bio-cell applications. Capillary force is one of the feasible methods for manipulating heterogeneous and complex micro parts. Liquids are flexibly deformed its shape and adapt any surface; we can pick up complex shaped micro objects softly. If we use a drop of pure water for generating capillary force, we can realize contamination less clean manipulation because pure water disappears by evaporation.</p><p>We have developed a capillary force gripper driven by a piston pump. Although we have designed this gripper to generate a liquid bridge between the end of glass pipette and picking-up objects, the theoretical validation of capillary force for this condition has not been conducted thus far. In this paper, we report the theoretical validation of the capillary force between the end of circular pipe and a plane surface by CFD analysis with the VOF method.</p>

     View Summary

    <p>Capillary force is an adhesion force generated by wetting the gap between two objects with liquid droplets, and it can be applied to capture miniscule complex shaped objects. In this report, we propose unique mechanism combining two kinds of liquid feeding methods such as the piston pump and the capillary phenomenon. In experiments, we evaluate the performance by measuring the capillary force of the developed gripper by an electronic balance. We also evaluate the positioning errors of automatic pick and place of cubic, cone, semi-circular shaped miniscule objects to investigate the feasibility for assembling complex shaped tiny objects.</p>
