Paper Abstract

The possible role of optical fibres in implementing some of the robot's more important sensing functions are outlined. In particular, taking after the living being's nerves, it is suggested that optical fibre sensors can be used as the robot's nerves, permitting it the facility to see/touch/listen. Typical optical fibre sensors that might be used in robotics and the advantages/disadvantages of opticfioerisation in this context are discussed.
