Bio-Mechatronics: From Insects to In-Vivo Mechatronics
MetadataShow full item record
Mechatronics is the synergistic combination of precision engineering, electronic control, and systems thinking in the design of products and manufacturing processes. Bio-Mechatronics may be viewed as its extension fused with influence from biological systems; i.e. mechatronic systems designed based on inspiration from neural and physiological systems. In animals, for example, intrinsic properties of the musculoskeletal system augment the neural stabilization of the organism for an array of critical of functions. Modeling this hierarchical coupling for implementation in robotic systems has spurred innovation in medicine, cybernetics, and mobile robots.
