Intelligent Microrobotics Lab (IML) is affiliated with School of Science and Engineering, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen. The lab is dedicated to the research ranging from fundamental science and physics to technologies and solutions to a series of applications. The current focused theme of IML centered upon the development of microrobotic systems, actuation and control strategies, vision detection, and cell/tissue/animal trials.

Our dynamic team aims to take advantage of a multidisciplinary approach in both academic research and down-to-earth solution development for real-world problems. Our team members own different backgrounds with mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science, but with a converged focus on microrobotics. We have a close collaboration network of international researchers.
Our research focus on a wide range of microrobotics, e.g., design/control/swarming of micro-nanorobots, small-scale devices for health-care applications, and bio-inspired robotics.
