Stevens team places third in 2010 IEEE/NIST Mobile Microrobotics Challenge
Date:5/21/2010

Competition events at the Challenge. The team's MAB microrobot had one of the fastest individual run of the Two-Millimeter Dash event at only 0.027 seconds. The final scoring for the event was the average time across three runs, therefore the team placed 5th out of 11 teams for this event.

In the Freestyle Competition, the team programmed their microrobot to automatically move in a both a square and X-shaped pattern inside the 3 mm x 2 mm playing field. Stevens placed third in the Freestyle Competition behind teams from ETH Zurich and Carnegie Mellon University, respectively.

The MAB's are capable of being controlled with both oscillating and gradient magnetic fields. Properly tuned oscillating fields cause vibrations in the robot resulting in turning or walking. Gradient magnetic fields can be used for steering the robot or for pushing/pulling of the robot for very fast movements.
