A flow sensor using an artificial sensory hair
|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.
