Robotic Communication and Sensing Using Structural Vibration in Natural Waveguides.

Hill, Lloyd.

Abstract: Structure-borne vibration is a common mechanism exploited by animals, both for communication and for sensing the surrounding environment. However, little work has been done to apply this rich body of knowledge in the robotics space. In this thesis, structural vibration is proposed as a method of inter-robot communication and environmental sensing. One-dimensional branching structures suc... read more
