Hello everyone!

I hope you are well and rested by now.

There is a report on slashdot slashdot about an article which is bringing a story of robotic bats. A group of scientists involved in CIRCE project are looking at bats for cues as to how to build a beter ultrasound sonar systems. Their idea is to put bat-like shaped ears on ultrasound sensor to get better reception.
The question that arises is why not use parabolic shaped ears? Do the bat-shaped ones have beter frequency filtering or something similar? Acoustic results are not yet published/available so we'll have to wait and see (or do them our self. Smile )

Anyway, I'm sure VSA participants, specially Dijana & Natalija, will find this familiar, and so would Brum-Brum. Smile

MTFBWY,
Mario.

Just checking our images archive ... and seems that the CIRCE bat design is more "tech", and our design is more "basic" Smile
