Automation technology carries out everyday tasks in factories such as gripping, moving and positioning goods as well as controlling processes. Nature performs these tasks instinctively, easily and efficiently. What could be more logical than to examine these natural phenomena and learn from them? The Bionic Learning Network brings together universities, institutes, development companies and private inventors to explore the power of nature. In this talk, Dr. Nina Gaißert will show how we can learn from nature.
Dr. Nina Gaißert is the biologist within the Bionic Learning Network and responsible for corporate bionic research at Festo.
Within the Bionic Learning Network, a research network linking Festo to well-known universities, institutes, development companies and private inventors, the young and motivated team is aiming to get inspired by nature and to learn from nature’s vast resources of intelligent solutions to improve the production of the future. Every year one to three projects get perfected. Numerous were awarded with innovation and design awards. The fast and successful work arises from agile development inspired by nature: bionic thinking.
