CAR Robot: Smart Micro Robot
CAR Robot, CAR
CAR Robot is a smart micro robot that designed tiny robots that in lab tests remove large patches of bacterial communities called biofilms found growing on medical devices and human teeth. Researchers seek to develop better techniques for dealing with the problem of biofilms, a scourge in medical facilities. Biofilms are communities of bacteria that connect and expand through a matrix of organic matter. These microbe colonies also stick tightly to surfaces, including medical devices and implants as well as human skin and teeth, making them difficult to treat, because of their persistence and ability to resist conventional antibiotics.
