Journal Article
Melhuish, C., Ieropoulos, I., Greenman, J., & Horsfield, I. (2006). Energetically autonomous robots: Food for thought. Autonomous Robots, 21(3), 187-198. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10514-006-6574-5

This paper reports on the robot EcoBot-II, which is designed to power itself solely by converting unrefined insect biomass into useful energy using on-board microbial fuel cells with oxygen cathodes. In bench experiments different 'fuels' (sugar, fru... Read More about Energetically autonomous robots: Food for thought.

Hierarchical fuzzy rule based systems using an information theoretic approach (2006)
Journal Article
Waldock, A., Carse, B., & Melhuish, C. (2006). Hierarchical fuzzy rule based systems using an information theoretic approach. Soft Computing, 10(10), 867-879. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00500-005-0013-y

This paper proposes a novel anytime algorithm for the construction of a Hierarchical Fuzzy Rule Based System using an information theoretic approach to specialise rules that do not effectively model the decision space. The amount of uncertainty toler... Read More about Hierarchical fuzzy rule based systems using an information theoretic approach.
