Abstract

Biomimetic flow sensors are biologically inspired devices that measure the speed and direction of fluids. This survey starts by describing the role and functioning of airflow-sensing hairs in arthropods and in fishes, carries on with the biomimetic MEMS implementations, both for air and water flow sensing, and ends up with some perspectives for bio-inspired micro-technologies based on the latest understanding of the biological sensors.
