This paper proposes a new approach for the non-invasive detection of Anaemia using the images of anterior conjunctival pallor captured by the Smartphone. The aim of this research work is to integrate technology with the visual detection technique used by the clinicians to estimate the anaemia detection for quick preliminary diagnosis as well as follow-ups, especially in the remote areas of India where accessibility & affordability of healthcare services is still a major concern. The objective of this research work is to introduce the automation of healthcare facilities in remote areas of India by developing an open-source website integrated with an accurate computational based algorithm. The proposed algorithm developed could achieve 81.27 % accuracy for the detection of Anaemia and with further improvement can be a viable alternative to the existing methods for anaemia detection thereby creating a humanitarian impact.

As microscopic swimmers survive in nature, they have evolved unique structures and swimming patterns under the water, which has special advantages. The movement of bacteria at low Reynolds number (Re) environment has aroused extensive research interest. The two typical swimming methods of bacteria are introduced in this paper. Based on this, we are inspired to design the bionic robot on a micro scale, which is an artificial structure that imitates the external shape, movement principle and behavior mode of organisms in nature. Compared with traditional robots, nano bionic robots are easier to miniaturize. They also have higher maneuverability so that they can move continuously and flexibly. We expect to simulate its motion at low Reynolds number (Re) fluids and explore complex future applications in different fields
