Robots are helping scientists explore the universe in new ways. EPFL’s microbots are designed to increase the quantity of astrophysics data. They will be used at large-scale telescopes in Chile and the United States. They position optical fibers within a micron.
These robots will be used to automate the positioning of “hundreds of optical fibers which serve to direct the telescopes towards objects in space.”
