It also determines the series of small legs crawling a robot centipedes shaped robot when the simulation of the voltage on the PZT material.
So simulate algorithms required flying insect is stabilized. But "Robofly" Harvard is nearly three times larger than the ARL is working to develop. Gyroscopes can be used to remove during missile navigation, ammunition, soldiers, or even if the GPS does not support work for some reason, Polcawich said.
His team has a number of research projects that relationship known in the position, navigation and timing as SOP. A number of different systems need to make a small robot that integrated realistic works as insect development.
Ron Wood of Harvard University is actually later in the development of a robot fly Polcawich. Said Polcawich However, working with wood and other academic and industrial researchers could quickly start searching.
Polcawich ago piezoelectric microelectromechanical systems or equipment PiezoMEMS in ARL. For micro-robotics research is interesting Polcawich said no on the highest level of funding. In a gust of wind to fly "immediately stabilize" Polcawich said. In some projects, inertia or IMU, speed and orientation of a device that uses a combination of gyroscopes, accelerometers and magnetometers report.
Ron and his team Polcawich Research Laboratory of the army, the ARL in Adelphi, Maryland known, led innovation in the field of small units and a pair of small wings 3-5 cm have developed robot length,
