In this article, we have pointed out several features of the sensory systems of insects that help these animals control their extraordinarily adaptable and agile locomotion on land. These impressive but often counterintuitive features allow the effects of sensory input to be adjusted continually according to the activity in which the insect is actively engaged, in contrast with hardwired reflexes ...

When searching for prey, many predator species exhibit a remarkable behavior: after prey capture, the predators promptly engage in "area-restricted search", probing for consecutive captures nearby. Biologists have been surprised with the efficiency and adaptability of this search strategy to a great number of habitats and prey distributions. We propose to synthesize a similar search strategy for the massively multimodal ...

A rough analysis of the scale effect as applied to a flying insect shows that the wing flapping frequency is inversely proportional to the square root of the size. The first two of the areas is used to design three simple structures. Aerodynamic calculations are made on the simplest structure. It is found that with a 0.5-mm chord, a 1-mm ...
In this article, we have pointed out several features of the sensory systems of insects that help these animals control their extraordinarily adaptable and agile locomotion on land. These impressive but often counterintuitive features allow the effects of sensory input to be adjusted continually according to the activity in which the insect is actively engaged, in contrast with hardwired reflexes that must be overcome as the animal switches from one activity to another. The pertinent question is how engineers can incorporate these and other features of biological systems into walking robots.
Ontology for insect recognition is a powerful tool to express semantics of insects and to share the knowledge of insects. In this paper, the framework of ontology based insect recognition is proposed. The framework includes training layer, ontology layer and recognition layer as well as methods for communicating between different layers. The training layer includes insect image samples database, feature extraction, insect feature knowledge database, insect type knowledge database; the ontology layer includes insect image visual feature ontology, insect image media feature ontology, classification module, insect morphology and taxonomy ontology.
When searching for prey, many predator species exhibit a remarkable behavior: after prey capture, the predators promptly engage in "area-restricted search", probing for consecutive captures nearby. Biologists have been surprised with the efficiency and adaptability of this search strategy to a great number of habitats and prey distributions. We propose to synthesize a similar search strategy for the massively multimodal problems of combinatorial optimization. The predatory search strategy restricts the search to a small area after each new improving solution is found. Subsequent improvements are often found during area-restricted search. Results of this approach to gate matrix layout, an important problem arising in very large scale integrated (VLSI) architectures, are presented. Compared to established methods over a set of benchmark circuits, predatory search is able to either match or outperform the best-known layouts. Additional remarks address the relation of predatory search to the "big-valley" hypothesis and to the field of artificial life.
A rough analysis of the scale effect as applied to a flying insect shows that the wing flapping frequency is inversely proportional to the square root of the size. The first two of the areas is used to design three simple structures. Aerodynamic calculations are made on the simplest structure. It is found that with a 0.5-mm chord, a 1-mm wing length and a 3- mu m thickness, it can generate 4.47*10/sup -7/ N of force, while its weight is 6.76*10/sup -8/ N, proving the feasibility of microrobot flight. Three large-scale models of flying microrobots are made with flapping frequencies in the range of 20 Hz. The influence of the flapping movement upon the whole structure is investigated.<<ETX>>
Stretch activation (SA) is a delayed increase in force generation in response to muscle stretch that occurs to various degrees in all muscle types. The mechanism behind SA is unknown, but likely involves a thin filament mechanism. Therefore, more information about thin filament proteins involved in muscle contraction is needed. Results comparing muscles with very high and almost no SA capabilities show a preliminary difference in troponin I (TnI); however, tests with higher resolution and specificity are planned to further elucidate the connection between key muscle proteins and SA.
This paper discusses the importance of transferring knowledge within an organization and reviews the development of the technological tools within CEMEX that facilitate that transfer. In order to demonstrate the importance of this function a job classification dedicated to transferring knowledge was created and has grown over the past decade. All five geographic regions as well as the central technology division have individuals functioning in this role. Various technological tools have been developed, and are still evolving, to promote and facilitate knowledge transfer between individuals and groups throughout the company as well as providing links to external resources. The ultimate goal of knowledge transfer is the reuse of best practices - in other words, sharing information and applying it.
The research incorporates the application of GIS and remote sensing techniques for the solution of different problems related to natural hazard and disaster management. This report studies the affects of environmental pollution by natural phenomenon due to allergic reactions caused by pollen grains. With the onset of spring season, the number of allergy patients starts rising throughout the country and there is an alarming rise in the spread of pollen allergy in the Federal Capital and its adjacent areas which causes cough, asthma, skin and other related diseases. Almost 80,000 people in Islamabad suffer from allergic reactions, which is almost 20 per cent of the total population. The main reason behind its spread is increasing pollution in the environment and the pollen grains. This study focuses on the hazards and risks imposed by the adverse affects of this allergy on people residing in Islamabad. By using GIS techniques an environmental hazard map of Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) has been prepared, showing elements at risk, affects of allergy and mitigation measures against pollen allergy, so that during the peak season of allergic reaction i.e., spring, allergic patients can consult the map and get information on all issues, such as, nearest hospital, high risk areas, precautionary measures, etc. related to pollen allergy in ICT.
Tethered flight patterns of Cletus rusticus Stal are separated into 2 groups, multi-halts group and oligo-halts group. The multi-halts group has 9 patterns, Biansu-Wending-Jiangsu pattern, Wending-Sushuai pattern, Kuanji-Duoting pattern, Za-Duoting pattern, ZhongqiBiansu-HouqiHuanjiang pattern, QianhouWending-ZhongqiBiansu pattern, Guilu pattern, Xiao-Chitiao pattern, and Kuaisu-Jiangsu pattern. The oligo-group has 4 patterns, Qianhou-Tingdun pattern, Houqi-Tingdun pattern, Qianqi-Tingdun pattern, and Zhongqi-Tingdun pattern. Each pattern is described and has at least one representative figure with a time-revolution curve map, a velocity-revolution curve map, and 8 parameters were given in the explanation on the top. These parameters are distance, duration, mean velocity, maximum velocity, mean velocity of one takeoff with the longest flight journey, distance of one takeoff with the longest flight journey, duration of one takeoff with the biggest flight duration, and the number of halts in the whole flight. All flight data were captured from a flight mill system with 26 channels.
The location detection is intensively investigated topic as it enables environment-man interaction, specially for the ambient intelligence applications (e.g. giving the user hints or warnings according to his location). In our work, which is motivated by the potential of implementing our prototype by MEMS technology, we got inspiration from the polarization of vision, which is found in some insects for location detection. The polarization vision in some insects enables them to navigate by the so-called polar compass, which is based on the polarization pattern of the sky. In our work, first we investigate a polar compass, then use this polar compass to determine the location, where more than one source is available by measuring the angles of all of the sources. Our experimental result proves the feasibility of our low cost, compact and integratable prototype to measure the angular displacement.
