Abstract : MEMS-based microgrippers with integrated force sensor have proved their efficiency to perform dexterous micromanipulation tasks through gripping forces sensing and control. For force control, knowledge based models are more relevant and gives better physical significance than the use of black box models. However this approach is often limited by many problems commonly encountered in the MEMS micro electromechanical systems structures such as: complex architectures, nonlinear behaviors and parameters uncertainties due to fabrication process at the micrometer scale. For these reasons theoretical approaches must be compared with experiments. This paper describes a modelling approach of a MEMS-based microgripper with integrated force sensor while handling micro-glass balls of 80μm diameter. Therefore, a state space representation is developed to couple both the dynamics of the actuation and sensing subsystems of the gripper through the stiffness of the manipulated object. A knowledge based model is obtained for small displacements at the tip of the gripper arms small gripping forces and is compared with experimental approaches. Good agreements are observed allowing interesting perspectives for the control.
