  • Bar-Cohen, Yoseph (Pasadena, CA : Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2004., 2004-05)
    Biology offers a great model for emulation in areas ranging from tools, computational algorithms, materials science, mechanisms and information technology. In recent years, the field of biomimetics, namely mimicking ...
  • Bar-Cohen, Yoseph (Pasadena, CA : Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2006., 2006-03)
    In this presentation, various aspects of the field of biomimetics will be reviewed, examples of inspiring biological models and practical applications will be described, and challenges and potential direction of the field ...
  • Bar-Cohen, Yoseph (Pasadena, CA : Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2006., 2006-01)
    The evolution of nature over 3.8 billion years led to the highly effective and power efficient biological mechanisms. Imitating these mechanisms offers enormous potentials for the improvement of our life and the tools we use.
  • Bar-Cohen, Yoseph (Pasadena, CA : Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2004., 2004-03)
    During the last decade and a half new polymers have emerged that respond to electrical stimulation with a significant shape or size change. This capability of electroactive polymer (EAP) materials is attracting the attention ...
