Optimal path evolution in a dynamic distributed MEMS-based conveyor

Abstract : We consider a surface designed to convey fragile and tiny micro-objects. It is composed of an array of decentralized blocks that contain MEMS valves. We are interested in the dynamics of the optimal path between two blocks in the surface. The criteria used for optimal paths are related to the degradation of the MEMS, namely its remaining useful life and its transfer time. We study and analyze the evolution of the optimal path in dynamic conditions in order to increase the efficiency of the conveying surface. Simulations show that during usage the number of optimal paths increases, and that position of sources greatly influences surface lifetime.
