Paper Abstract

To assemble hinged MEMS structures, a probe station with visual feedback has been used. With a feedback in the visual domain only, the assembly operation is really long and tedious. This paper presents the improvements using a force sensor with sound feedback coupled with vision. The developed interface allows the user to `hear the forces'. Thereby, the time and the sensitivity of the assembly operation are improved. Using the auditory interface, the assembly time is reduced by about 50%.
