The “Laboratoire d’Automatique de Besançon” has a recognised experience and expertise in the field of micro-robotics, micromanipulation and micro-assembly through the development of various types of micromanipulators for micro-components, biologic cells and medical applications. They were leader during ten years of the CNRS national Micro-robotics Network involving more than 20 research institutes in France (1995-2004) and Switzerland.


Nadine Le Fort-Piat (partner CNRS) is professor at the ENSMM (Engineering school of mechanics and microtechniques) and researcher at the AS2M department of FEMTO-ST. Her research areas concern perception and advanced control strategies based on visual servoing and reinforcement learning for automation of distributed microrobotic systems. She is the leader of the Hydromel Project at CNRS (FEMTO-ST) and is especially involved in high resolution 3D vision, visual servoing, and self-learning. She leads the training activities of the Hydromel project. (www.femto-st.fr/fr/Departements-de-recherche/AS2M/Presentation/

Philippe Lutz ((partner CNRS) joined the Université de Franche-Comté in Besançon as Professor in 2002. He is currently the head of the research group “Automated Systems for Micromanipulation and Micro-assembly” of the AS2M department of FEMTO-ST. He teaches at the master level the design of Mechatronic Systems and Production System. His involvement in Hydromel project concerns control architecture and strategies, feeding strategies (SP2) and compliant systems specifications for demonstrator 1 (SP7).

Cedric Clevy (partner CNRS) is associate professor at the Université de Franche-Comté since 2006 and researcher at the AS2M department of FEMTO-ST. His research field is micro-assembly especially micro-assembly of optical based MOEMS, design of systems for microfactories flexibility and design, modelling and control of microrobotic systems. His involvement in Hydromel project concerns handling strategies (SP2) and the development of a vacuum gripping system for demonstrator 1 (SP5 and SP7).

Jerome Dejeu is CNRS post doctorate and researcher at the AS2M department of FEMTO-ST.  His research area concerns the adsorption of polymer on the surfaces and the characterization of the modified surfaces. He is the leader of the WorkPackage 4.1 (Methodologies for self-assembly-assisted robots) and his involvement in Hydromel project concerns the control of the surface forces such as electrostatic forces, Van Der Waals forces. The control was obtained by adsorption of polymers or grafting of silanes on surfaces, and the characterization was done by the measurement of attractive and repulsive forces with atomic Force Microscope.

Michael Gauthier (CNRS) is Senior Scientist in the AS2M department of FEMTO-ST since 2004. His research areas concern:

- Modelling of the object's behaviour in the microscale (microworld) ;
- Study, modelling, and control of handling strategies dedicated to microworld;
- Study of robotic microassembly of microcomponents whose size is about 1 to 100 micrometers.

He is involved in the HYDROMEL research project at CNRS (FEMTO-ST) and leads the WP4.1 concerning Methodologies for self-assembly-assisted robots and works particularly on functionnalization of grippers.



Joël ABADIE is CNRS Research engineer in the AS2M department of FEMTO- ST (UMR CNRS 6174). His research areas concern Magnetic actuators and Micro and nanoforce measurement. He is involved in the research project HYDROMEL in subproject SP2 Robot Based Handling concerning Task 2.1.1: High resolution actuators and particularly in the development of Magnetic Shape Memory Alloy actuators.





Brahim Tamadazte holds a MS degree in Robotics and Intelligent Systems from the Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI) university, France. He is currently a PhD Student at Femto-st Institute in AS2M department (Automatic Control and Micro-Mechatronic Systems) and works in the framework of the Hydromel project on 3D vision and visual servoing.
