On the use of various oscillatory air flow fields for characterization of biomimetic hair flow sensors

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademic


    To determine the characteristics of flow sensors, a suitable source for flow generation is required. We discuss three different sources for oscillating air flow, by considering their acoustic impedance, frequency range, velocity and ability to distinguish between flow and pressure. We discuss the impact of these sources on characterization of our biomimetic hair flow sensors, which operate at flow velocities from 1-100 mm/s within a frequency range from 10-1000 Hz.
