Abstract

We report the hexapod microrobot controlled by the bare chip IC of hardware neural networks. MEMS (micro electro mechanical systems) technology is used for fabrication of the microrobot. Lead zirconium titanate (PZT) and shape memory alloy (SMA) are used in each actuator, respectively. As the result, PZT type is realized the walking motion by bare chip IC. Moreover, SMA type shows the hexapod walking locomotion with mounted bare chip IC. The walking speed is 2.4mm/min and the step width was 0.083mm.
