Bio-inspired solutions are often taken into account to solve problems that nature took millions of years to deal with. In the field of robotics, when we need to design systems able to perform in unstructured environments, bio-inspiration can be a useful instrument both for mechanical design and for the control architecture. In the proposed work the problem of landslide monitoring is addressed proposing a bio-inspired robotic structure developed to deploy a series of smart sensors on target locations with the aim of creating a sensor network capable of acquiring information on the status of the area of interest. The acquired data can be used both to create models and to generate alert signals when a landslide event is identified in the early stage.

Abstract

Bio-inspired solutions are often taken into account to solve problems that nature took millions of years to deal with. In the field of robotics, when we need to design systems able to perform in unstructured environments, bio-inspiration can be a useful instrument both for mechanical design and for the control architecture. In the proposed work the problem of landslide monitoring is addressed proposing a bio-inspired robotic structure developed to deploy a series of smart sensors on target locations with the aim of creating a sensor network capable of acquiring information on the status of the area of interest. The acquired data can be used both to create models and to generate alert signals when a landslide event is identified in the early stage. The design process of the robotic system, including dynamic simulations and robot experiments, will be presented here.
