Single motor actuated peristaltic wave generator for a soft bodied worm robot (2016)
Presentation / Conference
Winstone, B., Pipe, A. G., Melhuish, C., Callaway, M., Etoundi, A., & Dogramadzi, S. (2016, June). Single motor actuated peristaltic wave generator for a soft bodied worm robot. Paper presented at BioRob 2016 - IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics

This paper presents the design and development of a single motor actuated peristaltic worm robot with three segments using a bio-inspired method of locomotion with one actuator that achieves optimised worm like peristaltic motion. Each segment consis... Read More about Single motor actuated peristaltic wave generator for a soft bodied worm robot.

Biomimetic tactile sensing capsule (2015)
Journal Article
Pipe, T., Winstone, B., Pipe, A. G., Melhuish, C., Dogramadzi, S., & Callaway, M. (2015). Biomimetic tactile sensing capsule. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-319-22979-9_12

© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015. Here we present a tactile sensing capsule endoscopy system. Whilst current capsule endoscopy utilises cameras to diagnose lesions on the surface of the gastrointestinal tract lumen, this proposal... Read More about Biomimetic tactile sensing capsule.

SABRE: A bio-inspired fault-tolerant electronic architecture (2013)
Journal Article
Pipe, A. G., Dragffy, G., Samie, M., Liu, Y., Bremner, P., Bremner, P., …Tyrrell, A. M. (2013). SABRE: A bio-inspired fault-tolerant electronic architecture. Bioinspiration and Biomimetics, 8(1), https://doi.org/10.1088/1748-3182/8/1/016003

As electronic devices become increasingly complex, ensuring their reliable, fault-free operation is becoming correspondingly more challenging. It can be observed that, in spite of their complexity, biological systems are highly reliable and fault tol... Read More about SABRE: A bio-inspired fault-tolerant electronic architecture.

Lump localisation through a deformation-based tactile feedback system using a biologically inspired finger sensor (2012)
Journal Article
Pipe, T., Roke, C., Melhuish, C., Pipe, A. G., Drury, D., & Chorley, C. (2012). Lump localisation through a deformation-based tactile feedback system using a biologically inspired finger sensor. Robotics and Autonomous Systems, 60(11), 1442-1448. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.robot.2012.05.002

The ability to localise harder areas in soft tissues is often desired during robot-assisted surgical operations. A deformation-based tactile feedback system was tested for the detection of objects within soft tissues, after being chosen over common p...

Convergence synthesis of dynamic frequency modulation tones using an evolution strategy (2005)
Conference Proceeding
Mitchell, T. J., & Pipe, A. G. (2005). Convergence synthesis of dynamic frequency modulation tones using an evolution strategy. In F. Rothlauf, J. Branke, S. Cagnoni, D. Wolfe Corne, R. Drechsler, Y. Jin, …G. Squillero (Eds.), Applications on Evolutionary Computing. , (533-538). https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-540-32003-6_54

This paper reports on steps that have been taken to enhance previously presented evolutionary sound matching work. In doing so, the convergence characteristics are shown to provide a synthesis method that produces interesting sounds. The method imple...

Artificial endosymbiosis (1995)
Journal Article
Pipe, A. G., Bull, L., Bull, L., Fogarty, T. C., & Pipe, A. G. (1995). Artificial endosymbiosis. Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence, 929, 273-289. https://doi.org/10.1007/3-540-59496-5_305

© Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 1995. Symbiosis is the phenomenon in which organisms of different species live together in close association, resulting in a raised level of fitness for one or more of the organisms. Endosymbiosis is the name given... Read More about Artificial endosymbiosis.
