Researchers at Tel Aviv University conducted research on robots and they were able to install some exterior parts of a human body. The researchers have successfully connected the ear of a dead locust to a robot that can receive the ear’s electrical signals and these signals contain some information that helps process command and then responds accordingly. The response is very much clear and it generally acts as an ear of a human being and when we see the results, they are extraordinary. The locust’s ear is very sensitive and highly responsive so to test these things and features, scientists did a clap test in where they clap the locust’s ear hears the sound, and the robot moves forward. When the researchers clap twice the robot moves backward and it reacts according to the command inserted by developers. The sound sensor in the robot is very much sense that they can hear a low-frequency voice as well. The study was led by highly expert professors and it was an interdisciplinary study that is analyzed by individuals and was also published online.

Idan Fishel, a joint master student under the joint supervision of Dr. Ben M. Maoz of the Iby and Aladar Fleischman Faculty of Engineering, Prof. Yossi Yovel and Prof. Amir Ayali, experts from the School of Zoology and the Sagol School of Neuroscience together with Dr. Anton Sheinin, Yoni Amit, and Neta Shavil were some main leads of this study and they put off all their efforts to make this study a possible success because to implant another organ into a machine is a very difficult task and hence it needs a lot of efforts.

The researchers successfully did this experiment and initially many questions were asked that if it was going to be a win situation or was a flop idea. The analysts clarify that toward the start of the examination, they had the option to inspect that what are the upsides of the biological system and how it very well may be incorporated into the technology system. It was exceptionally troublesome as the part was a dead part and every one of the tactile cells was profoundly harmed, and how the feelings of dead locust could be utilized as sensors for a robot. We picked the sense of hearing since it tends to be effectively contrasted with existing technologies, as opposed to the feeling of smell.
