Having difficulty getting your robot parts to work as planned? Turn to nature — or better yet, look inside yourself. After all, where better to find inspiration than the humans that the machines will one day enslave right? Researchers at Gerogia tech have been working to develop a system to control cameras in robots that utilizes similar functionality as human muscle.
The team recently showed off their work at the EEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics in Rome. When fully developed, they anticipate that the piezoelectricsystem could be used for MRI-based surgery, rehabilitation and research of the human eye.
