Characterization of bistable mechanisms for microrobotics and mesorobotics: Comparison between microfabrication and additive manufacturing

Abstract : The use of mechanical bistable structures in the design of microrobots and mesorobots has many advantages especially for flexible robotic structures. However , depending on the used fabrication technology, the adequacy of theoretical and experimental mechanical behaviors can vary widely. In this paper, we present the manufacturing results of bistable structures made with two extensively used contemporary technologies: MEMS and FDM additive manufacturing. Key issues of these fabrication technologies are discussed in the context of microrobotics and mesorobotics applications.
