  WP3 Design and Dimensioning of the Robotic Pill / Platform and its Variations

This workpackage will take care of aligning the numerous technical parameters related to the smart capsule, such as power consumption, compatibility issues, basic functions and all related constraints. The main result of this WP is a modular architecture of the smart capsule system for the development of preliminary and advanced prototypes. This architecture will consider both the main modules of the capsule (e.g. vision, locomotion, telemetry, power) and the modular parts, which could be different depending on the different diagnosis and therapy procedures which will be selected.
