Nanorobots: The Ultimate Wireless Self-Propelled Sensing and Actuating Devices

Natural motor proteins, "bionanorobots," have inspired researchers to develop artificial nanomachines (nanorobots) able to move autonomously by the conversion of chemical to mechanical energy. Such artificial nanorobots are self-propelled by the electrochemical decomposition of the fuel (up to now, hydrogen peroxide). Several approaches have been developed to provide nanorobots with some functionality, such as for controlling their movement, increasing their power output, or transporting different cargo. In this Focus Review we will discuss the recent advances in nanorobots based on metallic nanowires, which can sense, deliver, and actuate in complex environments, looking towards real application in the not-too-distant future.
