Abstract:This contribution reports on the major developments and achievements in our group on fabricating highly sensitive biomimetic flow-sensor arrays. The mechanoreceptive sensory hairs of crickets are taken as a model system for their ability to perceive flow signals at thermal noise levels and, moreover, to extract spatio-temporal flow information of the surroundings. To reach our final goal, i.e., a flow camera consisting of biomimetic flow-sensor arrays, most of our efforts have been focusing on increasing the performance of the biomimetic flow sensors and reliability of the fabrication process, respectively, by sensor-model optimizations and by optimization of processing procedures and materials.
