Untethered small-scale robotsare mechanical objects capable of being wirelessly powered and propelled in fluid environments. 

These tiny automata can be precisely controlled to locations where human access is restricted. Consequently, small-scale robots 

can be widely applicable in different fields [1] Small-scale robots (or micro-nanoswimmers) are often designed differently from 

their macro-sized counterparts for two reasons. First, while macro-sized robots typically use onboard batteries, micro-nanobots 

use external energy due to the current technological restriction of battery miniaturization. Second, small-scale robotscreate a propulsive 

force in response to external energy. Unlike macro-sized robots, small-scale robots swimming in a fluid by reciprocal motion show zero

net displacement since the drag force exerted on objects dominates over the inertial force at such small scales.[2] To overcome this 

challenge, small-scale robots employee unique swimming strategies similar to microorganisms in nature.


In this talk, we discuss how micro-sized living entities propel in fluids and apply their swimming strategies to small-scale robots. 

In order to achieve the swimming strategies inspired by nature, four different small-scale robots are newly designed by controlling 

their properties, such as geometry, material, physical, and chemical properties. [3-5] Furthermore, their propulsion mechanisms are 

understood for efficient and controlled propulsion by fully characterizing their resultant locomotion in Newtonian fluids.
