Abstract/Description

A novel technique for determining the relative visco-density of fluids using an actuated flexible beam inspired by the tactile whiskers of marine mammals is presented. This was developed for the in-situ calibration of a tactile whisker based system for measuring flow velocity around autonomous robots working in complex underwater environments.
