An artificial lateral line consists of a set of flow sensors arranged around a fish-like body which aims at localizing the surrounding moving objects, a common example of which is a vibrating sphere, called a dipole. The presence of diverse sources of uncertainty in the flow environment and flow sensors leads to an error in localization and thus challenges(More)
An artificial lateral line (ALL) consists of a set of flow sensors arranged around a fish-like body. An ALL aims at identifying surrounding moving objects, a common example of which is a vibrating sphere, called a dipole. Identification accuracy for an arbitrary dipole can be enhanced by a proper selection of design parameters of the ALL, including the(More)
This study develops a method for optimum design of an artificial lateral line system, which tracks underwater objects by using the extended Kalman Filter (EKF). Sensor noise and model uncertainty are considered for design optimization. Dependency of the optimum setting of the EKF and the design parameters on the amount of uncertainty is investigated as well.
Inspired by the lateral line of aquatic vertebrates, an artificial lateral line (ALL) system can localize and track an underwater moving object by analyzing the ambient flow caused by its motion. There are several studies on object detection, localization and tracking by ALL systems, but only a few have investigated the optimal design of the ALL system, the(More)
The lateral line system is a flow-sensing organ in aquatic vertebrates which provides short-distance sensing ability for localization and tracking of moving objects. This ability has inspired the development of artificial lateral lines (ALL), which consist of multiple flow sensors mounted on underwater robots or vehicles. By measuring and analyzing local(More)
Ionic polymer-metal composites (IPMCs) have inherent underwater sensing and actuation properties. They can be used as sensors to collect flow information. Inspired by the hair-cell mediated receptor in the lateral line system of fish, the impact of a flexible, cupula-like structure on the performance of IPMC flow sensors is experimentally explored. The(More)
