Control Design for Life Science Automation

Automation plays an increasingly important role in life sciences. The wide-range applications of life science automation include genomics and proteomics automation, drug delivery system automation, cell and tissue manipulation automation, and medical automation. A key component for the above automation system development is the control mechanism design. For example, controlled drug delivery systems pursue precisely drug targeting and releasing. This obviously requires advanced control instead of conventional open-loop control schemes. Cell and tissue manipulation systems demand control mechanisms that are reliable and robust for micro- and nanoscale manipulation. Surgical robots for medical automation require advanced control methods for real-time complex mechanism control. In this talk, we will present a new event-based two degree-of-freedom control method for micro-/nanoscale systems based on differential flatness. Compared with traditional time-based feedback control, the proposed method shows great potential in dealing with measurement noise and unexpected disturbances. Applications to drug delivery and electroporation-mediated gene delivery demonstrate the promising robustness of the approach.
