In general, mechatronics systems have no standard operating system that could be used for planning and control when these complex devices are running. The goal of this paper is to formulate a work platform that can be used as a method for obtaining precision in the manipulation of micro-entities using micro-scale manipulation tools for microsystem applications. This paper provide groundwork for motion planning and assembly of the Micro-Assembly Workstation (MAW) manipulation system. To demonstrate the feasibility of the idea, the paper implements some of the motion planning algorithms; it investigates the performance of the conventional Euclidean distance algorithm (EDA), artificial potential fields’ algorithm, and A* algorithm when implemented on a virtual space.
