Modeling the Behavior of Hair Follicle Receptors as Technical Sensors using Adaptive Control

Carsten Behn

Abstract

Based on the paradigm biological receptor and its fundamental feature to filter signals and transduce them, we set up a mechanical sensor system to find hints to establish a measurement or monitoring system. These technical systems have to offer high sensitivity to signals from the environment. To mimic the complex behavior of the biological system, adaptive controllers have to be applied to a mechanical sensor system to compensate and filter unknown ground excitations (uncertainties of the system). Before doing this we summarize previous work on controlling such mechanical systems. We expose the need of improvements of already existing strategies from literature, the corresponding problems are formulated. Improved adaptive controllers are presented. Their working principle is illustrated in various numerical simulations and experiments.
