Abstract: A novel approach to applying multi-stylus MEMS SDA Scratch-Drive-Actuator (SDA) micro-robots to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of dermatological conditions is presented. The operation of MEMS SDA has been well demonstrated by the research of (Donald et al., 2008) (Donald et al., 2006)(Donald et al., 2003). We assume that such SDAs may be applied to the skin and powered by a bandage-like substrate. A method of controlling the turning operation of MEMS SDA Scratch-Drive-Actuator (SDA) micro-robots has been developed previously by our research: adding an additional stylus arm to control left and right rotation as well as using both arms to halt. In order to control multiple micro-robots without the complication of different stress curling that requires high voltages incompatible with dermatological applications, an alternative solution of controlling electrical connection between the parallel-plate body and the stylus arms is presented that uses a binary-encoded signal. Also an add itional beam added to the body of SDA to be used as micro-scalpel can be controlled by this same signal. (More)
