In this paper, experiments on frictional performances of micro capsule-like samples are carried out with sliding in one piece of off-body chitterlings, and the factors which influence on movement of the samples have been studied as well. The micro capsule-like samples are different in size, weight and material. Each sample is put into the same piece of cleaned-out chitterlings and then is driven by a piece of string attached on one end of the sample. The electrical signals are measured to detect the tensile force needed to driven the sample. By analyzing and comparing the data acquired, the influence of the parameters of the sample is discussed. The results of the experiments indicate that material, diameter and weight are of significant influence on the frictional force while length not.
