Organized Bio-Modules (OBM) using Microorganisms

Summary

Our goal is the realization of a super-large-scale microsystem that provides flexible and various functions, by integrating microorganisms as modules into information processing systems. For existing Micro-Electro Mechanical System (MEMS), it has been difficult to sense the status of the system. Therefore it provides only a single function. However, microorganisms are very smart micromachines with built-in sensors and actuators in their bodies. By feedback control system which makes many microorganisms cooperate together, a novel programmable and multi-functional microsystem will be realized. Our technologies, such as Visual Servoing Theory, Dynamic Image Control (DIC) System and High-speed Focusing Lens, will be applied effectively to the OBM system.
