Digital holography is used to track the three-dimensional position of a magnetic microrobot maneuvered in real time by means of an electromagnetic manipulation system. The method presented is able to process holograms at 40 Hz with a position accuracy in the imaging plane and in depth of +/- 23 and +/- 180 mu m, respectively. As this method does not require magnification, microrobots can be tracked in significantly larger working volumes than conventional optical methods. The performance of this tracking method is demonstrated by visually servoing a magnetic bead around a cubic trajectory.
