Abstract: Micro-technologies have enabled several technological
breakthroughs in electronics and mechanics thanks to the development of the
so-called microsystems. For a widespread development and use of
microsystems, flexible and accurate robots capable of achieving
manipulation, characterization and assembly tasks at the micro-scale
(1μm-1mm) are required. Actual robots are flexible and accurate but they are
clearly not enough smart for micro-scale purposes, and miniaturization is
now limited by human operator’s dexterity and constancy. Collaborative
robotics is the key to merge the best capabilities of robot and human in
order to pass through the miniaturization limits and to get a productivity
improvement. The aim of the thesis is the development of new control
strategies on high precision robotic systems taking into account the human
operator and multiple sensor signals (e.g. vision, force, position,
velocity, etc.) in the control loop together. The challenge is to design and
to build a set of control schemes with various levels of interactions with
the operator. The capability to efficiently switch between one control
scheme to another will notably be investigated. Different control methods
may be used in parallel during a single elementary task. The robotic systems
along with the proposed control strategies will be tested on concrete cases
related to micro/nano-manipulation and nano-materials characterization
