Unformatted text preview: Biomimetic Underwater Robot Program Joseph Ayers, PI/POC Marine Science Center East Point, Nahant, MA 01908 email: [email protected] http://www.neurotechnology.neu.edu What we do: We employ biomimetic approaches to confer the adaptive capabilities of marine animal models to engineered devices. These devices include sensors, actuators, adaptive logic systems, electronic nervous systems, biomimetic underwater robots and neurorehabilitative devices. Our Robots: RoboLobster and RoboLamprey Our Technologies Biomimetic Robots: We have built four classes of biomimetic robots based on the American Lobster. These robots capture the biomechanical advantages of lobsters and employ a sensorimotor system consisting of neuromorphic sensors, a controller based on the command neuron, coordinating neuron, central pattern generator architecture of animals and myomorphic actuators and a behavioral library reversed engineered from studies of the lobsters. We have also created two generations of a biomimetic robot based on the from studies of the lobsters....
