    Micro-nano operating robots are a relatively young area of research. After 30 years of experience in this field, the basic physics problems related to micro-nano operations have been well understood and solved. The development of micro-nano-scale sensor triggering and control technology, systems and tools has also developed rapidly. This report begins with a brief history of the development of micro-nano operating robots, describing micro-nano-scale sensing, triggering techniques, analysis of microscopic vision and micro-Nanoton force feedback control methods (eg how to use 2D microscopic vision to obtain accurate 3D) Information; how to perform robot path planning for large deformation objects operating on micro-nano scales, and robotic micro-operation techniques based on sound field, magnetic field, and light field. Finally, the typical application cases of micro-manipulation robot technology in the past ten years are introduced, for example Nanomanipulators for the operation and measurement of single triodes and nanomaterials, precision robotic surgery, tumor delivery and therapy, and robotic cell surgery applications


   Yu Sun is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, with joint appointments in the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto (UofT). He is a Tier I Canada Research Chair, and the founding Director of the UofT Robotics Institute. His Advanced Micro and Nanosystems Laboratory specializes in developing innovative technologies and instruments for manipulating and characterizing cells, molecules, and nanomaterials. He was elected Fellow of ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers), IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science), NAI (US National Academy of Inventors), CAE (Canadian Academy of Engineering), and RSC (Royal Society of Canada) for his work on micro-nano devices and robotic systems.

    Sun obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in 2003 and did his postdoctoral research at ETH-Zürich. He joined the University of Toronto in 2004. In 2012-2013, he directed the University Nanofabrication Center as the faculty director. Sun has served and serves on the editorial boards of IEEE Trans. Robotics, IEEE Trans. Automation Science and Engineering, IEEE Trans. Mechatronics, J. Micromechanics Microengineering, Sensors and Actuators A: Physical, Scientific Reports, and Microsystems & Nanoengineering. Among the awards he received were the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Early Career Award; over a dozen best paper awards and finalists at major international conferences; seven times University of Toronto Connaught Innovation Award; the McLean Award; the First Prize in Technical Achievement of ASRM (American Society for Reproductive Medicine); an NSERC E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowship; and the IEEE C.C. Gotlieb Computer Award.
