In this paper, we will propose the neural networks integrated circuit (NNIC) which is the driving waveform generator of the 4.0, 2.7, 2.5 mm, width, length, height in size biomimetics microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) microrobot. The microrobot was made from silicon wafer fabricated by micro fabrication technology. The mechanical system of the robot was(More)
This paper presented a driving circuit which can output a driving waveform of the piezoelectric element impact-type actuator. The piezoelectric element impact-type actuator generates the rotational movement which is necessary to move the legs of the micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) microrobot. The MEMS microrobot is made from silicon wafers(More)
This paper discussed insect-type MEMS microrobot system which could locomote without using computer programs. Locomotion of the MEMS microrobot was generated using the analog circuit of artificial neural networks. We constructed the artificial neural networks as a bare chip integrated circuit (IC) which could mount on top of the MEMS microrobot. As a(More)
This paper proposes an impact-type microelectro mechanical systems (MEMS) rotary actuator and application for a millimeter-scale MEMS microrobot. The rotational motion of the actuator was generated by vibration of a multilayer piezoelectric element. The size of the fabricated actuator was 1.0 mm × 4.4 mm × 3.2 mm. The fabricated actuator was controlled by(More)
In this paper, we report the hexapod type micro robot controlled by the neural networks. MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) technology that based on the semiconductor process is used for fabrication of the microrobot. The rotational actuator is composed of four artificial muscle wires that is family of SMA (shape memory alloy). The power type bare chip(More)
