  • Multi-Stage Micro Rockets for Robotic Insects

    One of the main challenges for sustained flight of current aerial micro robots is the low energy density available from common power sources. In this paper we propose solid rocket fuel powered micro thrusters as a high energy density actuation method for aerial micro robots. In a multi stage configuration these thrusters can be used for intermittent flight which can decrease the energetic cost of locomotion. In particular we focus on the fabrication method and characterization of multistage micro thrusters with a diameter of 3mm and 6.4mm. We demonstrate a sustained and repeatable thrust force of up to 35mN for a duration of up to 42s and a multi-stage designs with a time delay of up to 4.7s between the propulsion phases. Furthermore, we present a take-off trajectory of a 10cm rocket glider with an integrated micro thruster as propulsion mechanism showing that the technologies developed can be used to successfully power micro robots in flight. Future work will focus on control and flight dynamics of micro thruster powered gliders. Wider applications of similar thrusters can include other robotic applications where low weight and high force is important such as for jumping or running robots.1

  • How insects learn about the sun's course: alternative modeling approaches

    One of the major puzzles in animal behavior, arid a major problem to be solved in the design of robots, concerns how spatial patterns in the environment can be encoded internally and used for navigation in a complex natural environment. Most work on this issue has concerned landmark learning. This paper deals with a phenomenon of spatial learning that is at least as widespread in the animal world as landmark learning, but has received comparatively little attention. The phenomenon is the ability to learn the course of the sun relative to earth-bound features, and thus to use the sun as a true compass. After reviewing behavioral evidence from bees and ants, two particularly well studied species, we evaluate the applicability of symbolic and connectionist approaches to modeling the internal representation of this environmental pattern.

  • The Taxobook: History, Theories and Concepts of Knowledge Organization (Part 1 of a 3-Part Series):History, Theories, and Concepts of Knowledge Organization

    This is the first volume in a series about creating and maintaining taxonomies and their practical applications, especially in search functions. In Book 1 (The Taxobook: History, Theories, and Concepts of Knowledge Organization), the author introduces the very foundations of classification, starting with the ancient Greek philosophers Plato and Aristotle, as well as Theophrastus and the Roman Pliny the Elder. They were first in a line of distinguished thinkers and philosophers to ponder the organization of the world around them and attempt to apply a structure or framework to that world. The author continues by discussing the works and theories of several other philosophers from Medieval and Renaissance times, including Saints Aquinas and Augustine, William of Occam, Andrea Cesalpino, Carl Linnaeus, and Rene Descartes. In the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, John Locke, Immanuel Kant, James Frederick Ferrier, Charles Ammi Cutter, and Melvil Dewey contributed greatly to the theori s of classification systems and knowledge organization. Cutter and Dewey, especially, created systems that are still in use today. Chapter 8 covers the contributions of Shiyali Ramamrita Ranganathan, who is considered by many to be the "father of modern library science." He created the concept of faceted vocabularies, which are widely used--even if they are not well understood--on many e-commerce websites. Following the discussions and historical review, the author has included a glossary that covers all three books of this series so that it can be referenced as you work your way through the second and third volumes. The author believes that it is important to understand the history of knowledge organization and the differing viewpoints of various philosophers--even if that understanding is only that the differing viewpoints simply exist. Knowing the differing viewpoints will help answer the fundamental questions: Why do we want to build taxonomies? How do we build them to serve multiple points of view?

  • A Stigmergic Cooperative Multi-Robot Control Architecture

    In nature, there are numerous examples of complex architectures constructed by relatively simple insects, such as termites and wasps, which cooperatively assemble their nests. A prototype cooperative multi-robot control architecture which may be suitable for the eventual construction of large space structures has been developed which emulates this biological model. Actions of each of the autonomous robotic construction agents are only indirectly coordinated, thus mimicking the distributed construction processes of various social insects. The robotic construction agents perform their primary duties srigmergically, i.e., without direct inter-agent communication and without a preprogrammed global blueprint of the final design. Communication and coordination between individual agents occurs indirectly through the sensed modifications that each agent makes to the structure. The global stigmergic building algorithm prototyped during the initial research assumes that the robotic builders only perceive the current state of the structure under construction. Simulation studies have established that an idealized form of the proposed architecture was indeed capable of producing representative large space structures with autonomous robots. This paper will explore the construction simulations in order to illustrate the multi-robot control architecture.

  • Adaptive locomotion in a complex environment: simulation of stick insect gap crossing behaviour

    In a complex three dimensional environment, the ability to climb across large gaps and obstacles is fundamental for a stick insect. The same ability is desired for a walking animat that operates in a similar habitat, In this study, the neural network simulation WALKNET that has been modelled on stick insect walking behaviour is used as a basis for the introduction of new behaviours that enable it to climb over large gaps. Gap crossing behaviour of stick insects has been studied to show which behaviours are most crucial for reaching the far edge. As slowing down of forward movement and searching movements of the front legs in the gap have been considered most important, these two behaviours have been analysed. Subsequently, new modules for velocity control, adaptation of swing amplitudes and generation of searching movements have been implemented into the WALKNET controller. With these innovations, the animat is able to climb across gaps of more than twice its normal step length, using similar strategies as the biological model. The new behaviours improve its adaptability and performance under challenging environmental conditions. Further results of experimental gap crossing studies are discussed with respect to their value for the walking simulation and robotic applications.
