  • Steinemematid and heterorhabditid nematodes were not effective to control the piU bug, Armadillidium vulgare although these nematodes were able to infect pill bugs. Steinernema carpocapsae Pocheon strain and S. glaseri Dongrae strain were more effective than S. carpocapsae AU strain or Heterorhabditis bacteriophora. Nematode concentration was more important factor than host density to develop infectivity.

  • Reconnaissance robots can reduce the danger of hazardous places by providing information before human personnel take action. For the usage, robot platform should be small and light. However, this fact leads to a scaling issue with terrain that landscape poses a huge obstacle for the vehicle. The problem can be solved by the inspiration of nature. This paper presents design of the locomotive mechanism inspired by Pill bugs. The mechanism was designed by the principles of a pill bug's locomotion and experiments were conducted to validate the mechanism.
