Abstract

Small insects have agile performance in flight, walking locomotion, and so on. Currently, many researchers have been focusing the dynamics of their locomotion. We have been developing micro scaled piezoresistive force sensors to measure forces exerted by insects during flying, walking and jumping. In this paper, we introduce these sensors which are specialized for target insects.
