Neural Networks Integrated Circuit for Biomimetics MEMS Microrobot
In this paper, the authors will propose the Neural Networks Integrated Circuit (NNIC) which is the driving waveform generator of the 4.0, 2.7 and 2.5mm, width, length and height in size biomimetics Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) micro-robot. The micro-robot was made from silicon wafer fabricated by micro-fabrication technology. The mechanical system of the robot was equipped with small size rotary type actuators, link mechanisms and six legs to realize the ant-like switching behavior. The NNIC generates the driving waveform using synchronization phenomena such as biological neural networks.
