Bio-inspired artificial pheromone system for swarm robotics applications
Na, Seongin; Qiu, Yiping; Turgut, Ali Emre; Ulrich, Jiri; Krajnik, Tomas; Yue, Shigang; Lennox, Barry; Arvin, Farshad (SAGE Publications, 2020-06-03)
Pheromones are chemical substances released into the environment by an individual animal, which elicit stereotyped behaviours widely found across the animal kingdom. Inspired by the effective use of pheromones in social insects, pheromonal communication has been adopted to swarm robotics domain using diverse approaches such as alcohol, RFID tags and light. COS phi is one of the light-based artificial pheromone systems which can emulate realistic pheromones and environment properties through the system. This...
Biomimicry for sustainability : an educational project in sustainable product design
Bakırlıoğlu, Yekta; Doğan, Çağla; Department of Industrial Design (2012)
The notion of sustainability has become an extensive area of research ever since the term emerged in the late 1980s, due to the negative effects of unsustainable production and consumption patterns on environmental stewardship, social equity and economic development. There have been various approaches developed for product design and education within the context sustainability. Biomimicry is one of those approaches, and its implications for product design education have recently started to be explored. In t...
Bioinks-materials used in printing cells in designed 3D forms
Tamay, Dilara Goksu; Hasırcı, Nesrin (2021-02-01)
Use of materials to activate non-functional or damaged organs and tissues goes back to early ages. The first materials used for this purpose were metals, and in time, novel materials such as ceramics, polymers and composites were introduced to the field to serve in medical applications. In the last decade, the advances in material sciences, cell biology, technology and engineering made 3D printing of living tissues or organ models in the designed structure and geometry possible by using cells alone or toget...
Bioprinting: A review of processes, materials and applications
Yilmaz, Bengi; Al Rashid, Ans; Mou, Younss Ait; Evis, Zafer; Koç, Muammer (2021-08-01)
3D printing (3DP) processes have evolved from simple prototyping for visual inspection purposes to functional product manufacturing that offers flexibility, customization, scalability, reliability, durability, and relatively high speed. These processes have been successfully applied to the biomedical field by unraveling previously inaccessible freedom layers, such as increased design complexity. Bioprinting is one of the 3DP processes that has helped develop more advanced research-specific experimental tool...
Bio-inspired solutions for bandwidth packing
Koruk, Talha; Onur, Ertan; Department of Computer Engineering (2018)
Sharing channel capacity among multi-rate sensors or synonymously packing bandwidth while satisfying quality of service requirements stays as an important challenge. We present bio-inspired solutions to this problem by reducing it to the NP-hard multiple-choice knapsack problem. We employ various bio-inspired population-based meta-heuristics to allocate capacity to the requesting nodes in a single-hop sensor network. In this thesis, we present the controlled lab experiments for determining the capacity of a...
