Georgia Tech scientists developing biology-inspired system to give robot eyes more human-like motion
Having problem getting your robot parts to work as organized? Turn to nature– or far better yet, look inside yourself. After all, where far better to locate inspiration than the humans that the machines will one day enslave, right? Specialists at Georgia Tech have actually been working to develop a system to control video cameras in robots that utilizes similar performance as human muscle. Says Ph.D. prospect Joshua Schultz,
The actuators established in our lab manifest numerous properties in typical with biological muscle, particularly a cellular framework. Basically, in the human eye muscles are controlled by neural impulses. Eventually, the actuators we are establishing will be made use of to capture the kinematics and performance of the human eye.
The team recently flaunted their work at the EEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics in Rome. When fully developed, they anticipate that the piezoelectric system could be used for MRI-based surgery, rehabilitation and analysis of the human eye.
