[Homework]2009-12-27&12-30 仿生机器人

Now from the Boston museum of science, Sic Tech today, on NECN.
You heard our imitating life, but how about technology imitating biology? Jioning us now from Museumse of Science Boston is Casey Kute from Carnegie Mellon University Princple. Hi Casey, (Hi, how are you?? )Good to have you with us. So you are looking to biology to design robots. What pecifically do you come up with?
So if you look at nature, you will see very unique abilities, one of them is gecko, which is a small wizzar that's able to climb on smooth surface. So we want to go and figure out how is it doing that and take that same ability and those princples and use them on some of the robot that we have. And one of them is fobal? which I have here. And it actually uses a flat tacl?? astomphere, which is our first step before begging the ** gecko firbes.
And how does the gecko do what it does?
So the gecko has tiny hair on the feet and one of those hair can get really close contact with the wall. And the force between the * and the firber and the wall come together and what it's called ** forces, more pecific, the vendor wall forces. And so if you get thousand of those tiny little hair really close to each other, you can get a significant amount of force.
And then what did you use to make the roboot * how the gecko moves?
So we use a * materials and modi some of this firbers, putting on one of our rorbots called Wallbots and it actually can climb on ** surface. One of the problems that you have is the tesion between the firber and the wall is really strong which is great for climbing but when you want to move, you gotta firgure out a way to move it. So we actually peel from the surface the same that gecko peels its toes off.
And so we are looking at some video here. This is wallbot?. Yes, absolutely. So it moves up the wall??
And you will see as the ther?? coming off, it peels. This is very different from the gecko, becasue the gecko actually really soft toes and it peels back and we are using more religouse surface, but it has the same princples behind all the biological things.
Pretty cool. What are some of the applications for this technology??
So one of those things we wanna do is small robots and put them into place where we could do survelliance and video monitoring. You can put different play roles and and do sensors and temperiature monitoring and all kinds of different things and move this sensors around which is a unique aspect.
All righ. on display at the museume of sicience.
Yeah, they are. Come by and see them.
Casey Kute, thank you so much for joining us this morning. Thanks for having me.
And you will be sure to join us every Thursday morning at this time for sic tech today. Or log on the musesum of sicienc website. MOS.org
