H2020 Lakhsmi project

The lakhsmi consortium (2016 - 2020) aimed to develop novel bioinspired flow sensors for near-field sensing. Ben worked on two WP's within this project as part of his PhD.

Ben was modelling, prototyping and testing sensors to work towards artificial lateral line hydrodynamic imaging: the ability to detect and track nearby underwater objects and obstacles. See also publications
