*Sensor equipped cyber cockroaches - Biobot project overview from Jeremy

During our monthly technical session on Jul 02nd, *Jeremy Cole* *from NCSU
Electrical and Computing *based *Active Robotic Sensing (ARoS) Laboratory *will
talk about the broader aspects and current state of the art related to *Biobots
related NC state research group project*. It is amazing to observe study of*
sensor equipped cyber cockroaches* since the past few years.

Biobot project aims to develop a mobile sensor network where insects are
used as mobile biological-robotic (biobotic) nodes.  It is very interesting
to note that a cyber-physical communication network established between the
insects using RF links, along with the neuromuscular stimulation system to
direct the control of the insects.

Per NSF, Autonomous navigation in unknown and dynamic environments has been
a major challenge for synthetic mobile robotic agents. On the other hand,
insects can easily solve such complex navigational problems and demonstrate
remarkably stable and optimized locomotion skills in almost any
environment. The derived information like pose estimation of biobot agents
are used in solving complex problems of life.

Please read more about NSF awarded Cinema Project below:


ARoS lab focuses on the development of tools for the fields of pattern
recognition, estimation theory, and statistical and topological data
analysis in order to solve problems in the areas of wearable health and
environmental monitoring, robotics and computer vision.

*Speaker Information:*

*Jeremy Cole is a graduate research assistant and a 4th year PhD
student,* receiving
his Bachelor and Master degrees at NC State. Jeremy has worked on motion
planning for steerable medical needles and am currently interested in
navigation for swarm-based systems.  His research involves the pose
estimation of the Biobotic agents used in the CINEMA project.

IEEE ENCS RA24 chapter appreciates the Jeremy's overview about the current
state of the art research in this topic that can reach those interested
people, thus positively fostering our local technical community.  We wish
continued success and all the very best to Jeremy's future.
