The design process, which applies principles of biomimetics, is inspired by the motion detection ability of birds and fishes and shock isolation ability of woodpeckers' skulls. Concrete blocks with and without base isolators were subjected to shake table tests to evaluate the efficiency of the base isolation system.

  • Biomimetics, nanobioinformatics and nanotechnology

    We define biomimetics as the coherent abstraction in devising, prototyping in design of organic, inorganic and hybrid nano- and microsystems using biological analogies through nanobioinformatics paradigm. Complex nano- and microscale biosystems exist in nature in enormous variety and sophistication. We apply complex biological patents to devise, analyze and examine distinct systems. One cannot blindly copy biosystems due to the fact that many complex phenomena and effects have not been comprehended, and nanosystem topologies have not been examined. The attention is concentrated on examining existing biosystems, devising novel paradigms, exploring new operating principles, examining functionality of different subsystems and nanodevices, researching novel structures, studying advanced architectures and characterizing distinct materials. Different nanosystems and nanodevices can be devised and designed through biomimetics based upon basic physical laws and nanobioinformatics. Our ultimate objective is to provide the focused study of biomimetics and systematic design through nanobioinformatics. The synergetic paradigm reported is demonstrated devising and controlling complex systems.

  • A review on biomimetics and nanotechnology

    The well-organized multifunctional structural compatibility of animals and plants found in our surroundings have attracted the interest of scientists working in many disciplines .There are different organisms in nature which are doing things in a similar way we humans need to do; the efforts to utilize these mechanisms by taking inspiration from these organisms resulted in a new and rapidly growing scientific effort called biomimetics. From the observations on these organisms it is found that their wonderful properties are all due to their micro or nano scale structural properties. In this article we present the utilization of some of these mechanisms found in nature to useful products for human with the help of nanotechnology and its tools.

  • Design of chemo-mechanical actuator using self-oscillating gel

    The goal of our research is to develop a chemical robot, which unlike the conventional robots with electrical power source, is powered by a chemical reaction similar to living organism. The first step in our research is to design a chemomechanical actuator using a self-oscillating polymer gel, which undergoes periodical swelling-deswelling process. The swelling-deswelling process generates periodical oscillation as the basic movement of the actuator. We consider our research as a basic study for constructing new biologically-inspired robots which do not only mimic the structures and functions of living organism but also the internal mechanism for force generation

  • Research on the mobile robot's odor source localization by biomimetics

    Many animals rely on their sensitive olfaction to look for partners, mate, identify family members, and other daily activities. It's a shortcut to study the mobile robot's odor source location by simulating animals' olfactory behavior. In this paper, the odor gas distribution is simulated by Fluent software, and the mobile robot's odor source searching strategies are proposed. In actual indoor environment, the mobile robot integrates the gas sensor, wind sensors, ultrasonic sensor, and integrates multi optimal searching algorithms, which can choose the optimum search strategy according to the changing of the environment. For the mobile robot, an integrated control system, which includes environmental awareness, decision-making and planning, behavior control and enforcement function, is developed in this paper.

  • Application of biomimetics intelligence for smart sensor surveillance system in legacy powerline network

    In multiple access communication, an addressing code - encapsulated information of senders or receivers - is essential for a correct data communication. However, it occupies a part of the data payload which causes a reduction in bandwidth utilization. This may not be a problem provided that the communications channel has a large bandwidth. The code division multiple access (CDMA) can encapsulate the code without occupying any data payload. However, many communication channels have, due to their physical characteristics, a small available bandwidth, which makes them unsuitable for CDMA. The low-frequency-band powerlines (<0.5 MHz) is an example of such a channel because such lines are not designed for data transmission purposes. Usage of the low frequency band, however, makes the system insensitive to the structure of the power grid, where many locations do not lend themselves to modification of the network. This paper describes an idea of communications without addressing in the low-frequency-band powerline network (<0.5 MHz) using finite alphabet signals and underdetermined blind signal separation (uBSS). The paper also presents a possible application of biomimetic intelligence for a surveillance system and a smart sensor web in the legacy powerlines.

  • Nanotechnology and biomimetics with 2-D protein crystals

    The application potential of crystalline bacterial cell surface layers (S-layers) as nature-tailored supramolecular structures is described. The fabrication of supramolecular devices requires molecules that are capable of interlocking in a well-defined manner. Thus, molecular self-assembly systems that exploit the molecular-scale manufacturing precision of biological systems are prime candidates for supramolecular engineering. Although self-assembly of molecules is an ubiquitous strategy of morphogenesis in nature, researchers in the area of molecular nanotechnology and biomimetics are only beginning to exploit its potential for the functionalization of surfaces and interfaces as well as for the production of biomimetic membranes and encapsulation systems. This article presents an overview of a new approach in nanostructure technology and biomimetics based on crystalline bacterial cell surface layers.

  • Biomimetics micro robot with CMOS IC neural networks locomotion control

    In this paper, we presented the 4.0, 2.7, 2.5 (mm), width, length, height size biomimetics micro robot system which was inspired by ant. The micro robot system was made from silicon wafer fabricated by micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) technology. The mechanical system of the robot was equipped with small size rotary type actuators, link mechanisms and six legs to realize the insect-like switching behavior. In addition, we constructed the complementary metal oxide semiconductor integrated circuit neural networks (CMOS IC NN) as a locomotion controlling system. The CMOS IC NN utilized the pulse-type hardware neuron model (P-HNM) as a basic component. The CMOS IC NN outputs the driving pulses using synchronization phenomena such as biological neural networks. The driving pulses can operate the actuators of the biomimetics micro robot directly. Therefore, the CMOS IC NN realized the robot control without using any software programs or A/D converters. The micro robot emulated the locomotion method and the neural networks of an insect with rotary type actuators, link mechanisms and CMOS IC NN. The micro robot performed forward and backward locomotion, and also changed direction by inputting an external trigger pulse. The locomotion speed was 26.4 (mm/min) when the step width was 0.88 (mm).

  • Realization of Associative Image Search: Development of Image Retrieval Platform for Enhancing Serendipity

    This paper presents "Associative Image Search", a new image retrieval scheme and its specific engineering application, which enable value creation from big data. The main aim of the associative image search is the realization of information retrieval that enhances the potential for serendipities by providing users with new awareness. Thus, this paper presents the details of research for realizing associative image retrieval. Furthermore, as an example of its applications, a Biomimetics image retrieval platform is also introduced in this paper. By associatively and collaboratively using data accumulated in the fields of biology and material science, the Biomimetics image retrieval platform enables acceleration of their knowledge sharing in different research fields. From retrieval results actually obtained from this platform, there is discussion of the potential of serendipities such as new knowledge emergence.
