人工感覚毛センサー


執筆者:高嶋聰(沖縄科学技術大学院大学



コオロギがもつ糸状の感覚毛はきわめて微小な空気の振動を感知できる音響センサーであり,とくに低周波の音に対する感度が高い.ここでは生物学的な知見と最新のMEMS技術をもちいたフローセンサーの開発事例を紹介し,その性能の評価をとおして生物の感覚機構の巧妙さを明らかにすると共に,人工センサーとしての応用可能性を展望する.

A flow sensor using an artificial sensory hair


responsibility for wording of article: Akira Takashima (OIST)


The filamentous sensory hairs in crickets are sound sensors, which detect micro-vibrations in the air. They are particularly sensitive to low-frequency sound. Here, we introduce an example of a flow sensor developed using the latest biological knowledge and MEMS technology, show how sophisticated the sensory mechanisms in living organisms are by evaluating their performance, and provide a prospect for practical application as an artificial sensor.
