We have been developing dexterous two finger micro hands and a total micro manipulation system. Our aim is to handle and to manipulate micro object whose size ranges from one to hundreds micrometers. We have improved and refined our hand focusing on extension of workspace, simple finger setting-up procedure, force sensing capability as well as calibration, automated picking-and-placing, etc. The micro manipulation system consists of microscope with high speed CCD camera, fine force sensor, user interface devices, and low level motion controllers.
