Graphene, an ultrathin membrane consisting of carbon, is currently the focus of numerous research groups around the world. Due to its outstanding physical properties, this new type of material is highly promising in enabling several novel applications. However, up until now, the integration of high-quality graphene into real devices remains challenging. This article presents a nanorobotic platform tailored for the rapid prototyping of graphene-based devices. Applying the capabilities of this platform, a nanorobotic strategy is proposed that enables the identification, electrical characterization, and integration of graphene into device structures without using any time-consuming lithographical procedures. In this way, graphene-based devices can be fabricated and classified within a few hours, significantly reducing the effort and, consequently, the costs of device prototyping. As an example of this strategy, graphene flakes are electrically characterized and transferred onto a target area of a final device.
