Nanotechnology is sub-atomic assembling or, all the more basically, building things one particle or atom at once with customized nanoscopic robot arms. A nanometer is one billionth of a meter (3 - 4 molecules wide). The trap is to control molecules separately and place them precisely where expected to create the coveted structure. A nanorobots (nanobots or nanoids) are commonly gadgets extending in size from 0.1- 10 micrometers and developed of nanoscale or sub-atomic parts. The measurements of a couple of nanometers (nm) or less, where 1 nm = 10-9 meter. The likelihood of nanorobots was initially proposed by Richard Feyman in his discussion "There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom" in 1959.
"Nanorobots" will be the nanomachines, that will repair the harm which collects as a consequence of digestion system (being alive) by performing nanorobotic remedial techniques on each of the ~75 trillion cells that include the human body [1-5]. The substructures included in development of nanorobot include installed power supply, sensors, nanocomputer, pumps, controllers and weight tanks. The highlights of nanorobots will be Nanorobots can be classified into two gatherings called self-ruling robots and creepy crawly robots.
A real resource of nanorobots is that they require next to no vitality to work. A real point of interest of nanorobots is thought to be their strength [6-10]. In principle, they can stay operational for a considerable length of time, decades, or hundreds of years. Nanoscale frameworks can likewise work much quicker than their bigger partners on the grounds that removals are littler; this permits mechanical and electrical occasions to happen in less time at a given rate.
Nanotechnology coatings are as of now being utilized to make dress with stain-safe strands. Nanotech powders are now being utilized to detail superior sun-screen moisturizers [11-15]. Nanoparticles are as of now serving to convey medications to focused on tissues inside the body. Extra applications are in progress in the zones of: therapeutic finding and medicines; biotechnology; propelled improvement of pharmaceuticals; beatufiers; aviation and auto businesses; security, protection, and natural insurance; gadgets, PCs and correspondence; vitality creation, stockpiling, and lighting; and assembling and item outline.

Nanomanufacturing is the formation of materials and items through: (1) Direct Molecular Assembly (DMA) - discrete, coordinated gathering of individual molecules and atoms into macroscale materials and items; (2) Indirect Crystalline Assembly (ICA) - making of conditions that cultivate the development of nanoscale precious stones that are then consolidated into macroscale materials and items; or (3) Massive Parallelism Assembly (MPA) - the production of numerous nanomachines or nanobots whose working parameters cause them to work synergistically to amass particles and particles into macroscale materials and items [21-25].
