This paper reports automated image-based pick and place procedures for manipulation of individual natural fibers. The developed procedures are part of an effort to develop a fully automated microrobotic-based platform for fiber characterization. The presented procedures are divided into unit operations, which can reused in multiple tasks that the platform must perform. Two different demonstrations: pick and place, and coordinated fiber lifting are presented. In addition, a component-based software that promotes reusability of the developed unit operations is presented.
