Abstract [en]

Recent advancements in biological nanomachineshave motivated the research on nanoroboticsensor networks (NSNs), where thenanorobots are green (i.e., biocompatible andbiodegradable) and touchable (i.e., externallycontrollable and continuously trackable). In theformer aspect, NSNs will dissolve in an aqueousenvironment after finishing designated tasksand are harmless to the environment. In the latteraspect, NSNs employ cross-scale interfacesto interconnect the in vivo environment and itsexternal environment. Specifically, the in-messagingand out-messaging interfaces for nanorobotsto interact with a macro-unit are defined.The propagation and transient characteristicsof nanorobots are described based on the existingexperimental results. Furthermore, planningof nanorobot paths is discussed by taking intoaccount the effectiveness of region-of-interestdetection and the period of surveillance. Finally,a case study on how NSNs may be applied tomicrowave breast cancer detection is presented
