Abstract

In this paper we report on the latest developments in characterising and interfacing biomimetic flow-sensor array based on the flow sensitive mechano-sensors of crickets. Capacitive hair sensors have been fabricated using a surface micromachining technology and implemented to detect air flows. We have realized readout electronics to detect the movements capacitively using electrodes integrated on the membrane. A charge amplifier, which produces an output voltage representing the capacitance variation of the selected sensor, is used to pick up the signal. An array of hair sensors is implemented for better and more representative flow signals compared to single sensor measurement. Different schemes for measuring individual sensors in arrays independently are discussed. Frequency Division Multiplexing is found to be efficient for this purpose individual element measurement.
