Original Abstract

This paper deals with a model-based design of an autonomous biomechatronic device for sensing and analog signal processing of acoustic signals. The aim is to develop a biomechatronic artificial cochlear implant for people with hearing loss due to damage or disease of their cochlea. The unique artificial electronic cochlear implant is based on an array of microelectromechanical piezoelectric membranes. Oscillations of membranes detect and filter acoustic signals in individual acoustic frequencies. The proposed biomechatronic device of the artificial cochlear implant consists of an active filters array, signal processing electronics, stimulation nerves electrodes and energy harvesting system for autonomous powering of the device. This solution differs from current cochlear implants solutions, which are bulky electronic systems limited by their high power consumption. The multidisciplinary models of the artificial cochlea implant concept are presented. The mechatronic approach based on model seems to be very useful for development of the full implantable cochlear implant which is designed for the sensing and processing of acoustic signals without external energy source.
