Soft and Small: Acoustic Transducers Inspired by Nature (SASATIN)

Start date: 01 Feb 2014, End date: 31 Jan 2019,

"The use of sound by humanity is ubiquitous. We utilise sound across a far greater range than we can hear for numerous extremely beneficial tasks. In Nature many animals have evolved ears, many of which are sensitive to sounds beyond human audibility. This includes an enormous variety of insects whose miniature ears detect sound to communicate, to detect their prey, or to avoid their own predators ...
