Abstract: Untethered miniature robots in the millimeter to micrometer scale are of growing interest in the field of healthcare and engineering. Some of the advantages of miniature robots are that they allow easy access to confined or enclosed areas. In the current state of the technology, there are multiple methods of actuation and multiple ways of fabrication that are available. As such, the best suitable method and way would be chosen for the actuation and fabrication in this report. The completion of required tasks by miniature robot using its on-board tools suggest the feasibility of on-board tools for untethered miniature robots. With the addition of on-board tools, when compared to traditional surgeries performed purely by hand, untethered miniature robots would allow very precise, difficult and near impossible tasks to be performed.
