Abstract

When the microscale friction becomes dominant over gravity, this is called the scale effect. As a method of mobility for microrobots, flight is advantageous because micro-flying robots can move freely from the ground where friction occurs. A flight system which gains thrust by rotating magnetic wings in an alternating magnetic field is proposed. This system is proved to be more advantageous at the microscale by theoretical analysis.
