Nature provides many examples of biological systems that work cooperatively to accomplish a common goal. Multiple agents or robots that works in formation or with coordination can improve efficiency in many tasks. Some tasks that are difficult to solve by using a single robot can have a feasible solution when multiple robots are employed. This project aims to design and implement vision based robotic formation controllers for multiple micro-particles. Image-processing module will be developed for detection, shape recognition and tracking for multiple micro-particles. This report emphasize on the image process and calculation of best grasping positions for the target cell. Optical Tweezer (OT) system will be used to manoeuvre the end effectors (silicon beads) to execute the grasping action.
