Recent progress in bioresorbable radio frequency electronics has promised the prospect of realizing a transient microbot system (TMS) for therapeutic applications. In this paper, we investigate simulation tools for the analysis of a TMS-oriented nano-communication (NC) model for targeted drug delivery, where the physically transient microbots are remotely controllable and trackable through an applied electromagnetic field (EMF), and are responsible for transportation of drug particles (channel in the NC context). Our approach is illustrated with a study case of drug delivery for breast cancer treatment by using the proposed analytical framework integrating robotics and communications at small length scales.
