Paper Abstract

A swimming microrobot driven by magnetic field is presented. A new smart material, ferromagnetic polymer was utilized as actuation material. The microrobot has a pari of FMP fins, which are soft and driven by magnetic field symmetrically. The principle of actuation is given. The size of the robot is 20mm by 14mm by 5mm. The robot can move forward and backward dependent on the magnetic flux density and the frequency. The robot has many possible applications, such as minimally invasive medical techniques.
