The article presents technological advancements for the theoretical and practical design of the basic and elementary architecture of an autonomous hexapod biomicrorobot (BMR). The minimal autonomy depends on the management system of global, regional and local events. The planning in a constrained environment rests on a complex system which incorporates a RISC architecture microcontroller, an independent bio-inspired propulsion system which acts like a pilot, a feeding and communication system and finally a proximity sensor. The last but one section presents the fabrication procedure for the whole structure of the BMR which is able to support a two-level hybrid hierarchy with fluidic logic.
