Paper Abstract

The present paper proposes a development framework of the nanorobots as functional heterogeneous nanosystems governed by the synergistic integration both at functional and structural levels. The main concept is that of the USIPS (Unified Synergistic Information and Power Signal) that represents both the information and power flows in nanorobots, and is the support for information processing, control, decision, movements and forces generation and application in performing nanorobot’s actions in and/or upon the working environment. Using the USIPS concept, 25 fundamental operations are determined, that integrate the representation of perception, processing, decision and actions. These operations together with the USIPS concept are used to develop at the operational level a nanorobot, but also every nanosystem. Thus, the proposed framework is a design approach that may be considered also as a support for CAD environments for nanorobots and nanosystems in general.
