Abstract: Soft robots are a sub-field of robotics that uses highly compliant materials to create robots that strives to perform or mimic functions displayed by biological organism. These robots are commonly made from silicone rubbers which is soft, flexible and more importantly biocompatible In comparison to their traditional hard rigid robotic cousins soft robots have the ability to deform their bodies into complex shapes by taking advantage of their unique material composition which results with them being more dexterous and capable of complex locomotion therefore able to adept and traverse complex and time-varying environments with ease. In addition, soft robots are unable to produce large forces which could potentially cause injuries to a human being hence allowing for greater human-robot interaction within the workplace. It is because of these characteristics scientist envision that soft robot have the potential to revolutionise healthcare and manufacturing sector.In this report we will be focusing on the promises miniature soft robots can bring to the healthcare sector, with special attention paid to fabricating a highly dexterous millimetre scale magnetic soft robot with a 3D continuous non uniform magnetization profile that is potentially capable of overcoming obstacles to reach a designated location to conduct complex surgical operations such as targeted drug delivery in previously inaccessible areas of the human body. This report shall go through the steps required to fabricate the robot and to highlight difficulties in the process that would need to be overcome in order achieve our goal.
