We propose to bring the instruments to the samples in the form of miniature wireless instrumented robots called the NanoWalkers. With the NanoWalker robot approach, instrumentations and throughput requirements can be adjusted extremely fast by simply adding, replacing, or removing robots at will. It is the aim of this project to develop a powerful and flexible environment that we believe may revolutionize the way drug, biological, material discovery, and characterization will be performed in the future.
