Paper Title:
Flower Robot – A Product of Biomimetic Technology
  Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new prototype model of a robotic flower with active guide tendon wires which has two bending degrees of freedom. The design and fabrication methods of this flower robot are described. We also modeled this robotic flower for characteristic evaluation. Experimental results show that the model of the flower robot is reasonable for practical applications. The flower robot is a multi-degree-of-freedom (DOF) device which was developed using a tendon-driven system. Two DOF motion for the robotic stem was realized by the tendon mechanism combining flexible spring, and 1-DOF motion of flower was created by a servo motor. Each leaf uses a spring and a tendon-driven string. The proposal structure consists of flower, stem and leaves operating like a flower robot. The experimental results indicate that the proposed flower robot with active guide wire is applicable to reality. Furthermore, it is integrated with sensors to perform its functions like a flower.
