Microbots Vs Macrobots

  1. Sep 29, 2011 #1
    The question is quite simple and does seem obvious. However, I am not too sure.
    In terms of nanotechnology, what is the difference between microbots and macrobots?
    I do believe that microbots (as hinted by their name) deal with (mostly) molecular-based robots on the nanoscale which are aimed for a specific purpose.
    I am not too sure about macrobots. Are they a system of microbots combined together to form a larger "robot" in order to achieve a function? Or are they just "larger" scaled robots that are not considered as small?

    Thanks in advance.
