• An insect-computer hybrid system for search operations in disasters

    The insect-computer hybrid system. a, The hybrid system consists of a dwelling Madagascar hissing cockroach and a wi-fi backpack controller. Autonomous navigation is enabled by electrical stimulating the insect’s sensory system, whereas the infrared digicam permits for on-device human detection through picture classification. b, The established navigation program cooperates harmoniously with the insect’s pure locomotive capacity to cope with unknown surroundings throughout the insect’s exploration missions. By controlling the stimulation (denoted with pink arrows), the algorithm efficiently directed the insect by way of obstacles to succeed in predetermined targets. Solely information from the on-board inertial measurement unit is utilized in navigation to foretell and stop potential navigation failure situations (denoted…
