How Nanorobots Work ?
Imagine going to the doctor to get treatment for a persistent fever. Instead of giving you a pill or a shot, the doctor refers you to a special medical team which implants a tiny robot into your bloodstream. The robot detects the cause of your fever, travels to the appropriate system and provides a dose of medication directly to the infected area.
Surprisingly, we're not that far off from seeing devices like this actually used in medical procedures.
Focus of this work is to study the interaction and sensing characteristics of nanorobots using NCD (nanorobot control design) software.
Characteristics of nanorobots:
CMOS IC nanobiosensor
How should the nanorobot be designed?
What materials should be used?
How will it be powered?
How will the data be transmitted?
Will nanorobots react in our body?
Choose a proper membrane polymer material to prevent the action of enzymes.
How will you get the nanorobots out of your body?
Enzymes inside the nanorobot can be released once a signal has been sent.

This was mentions on slides 14 and 15.
Nanorobots do not exist yet , current research is only based on theory and computer simulations.
our presentation specifically explained medical nanorobots for drug delivery.
references were shown at the end of the presentation, as for the picture citation, the wrong slides were update to the class website.
we have orally mentioned the outline of the presentation at the beginning of the lecture.
nanorobot safety was discussed , refer to slide 16. nanorobots ARE future applications that haven't been produced yet.
after the first speaker finished his section he proceeded to shif the presentation to the next presenter by introducing their name and what will they be talking about.
as mentioned in the presentation , the proposed nanorobots were propsed to be used as drug delivery method, as for their specific technical type, the research paper did not mention any information related to this.
the researched paper had no information on how these nanorobots fabricated/manufactured.
details about the relaxed SiGe integration into the nanorobot fabrication was not mentioned in the researched paper. But further information can be found at the following link: http://www.nanorobotdesign.com/papers/cancer.pdf page 2
Are the nanorobots actively activated or passively activated? How can these robots do their functions if they are coated in an enzyme that will nullify the activation of antibodies in the bloodstream? Will it somehow open up the cover and work on the parts of the body? Is that any potential harm in the body?
we have mentioned in class that these robots use enzyme reaction to target specific tissue or cells of the body to deliver the drug , specific amino acid sequance will trigger the activation of these nanorobots. Potential harm of these nanorobots was mentioned in the slides, refer to slides 16 and 17.

The presenters could improve at:
Presented by: Group U4
Critiqued by: Group U6
the back of the room
contact most of the time
cell phones to charge the robots and
receive information from the robots
was very innovative
