Learning from nature: in the Bionic Learning Network, a cooperation between Festo and renowned universities, institutes and development companies, principles from nature provide inspiration for technical applications and industrial practice.
Enter the world of bionics: from its natural model to the technical basic principle, the bionics adaptation to industrial application.
Transport and sorting in one
The pneumatic wave-like motion of the modular conveyor belt moves the goods to be transported over the surface in a targeted fashion – without any additional handling unit.
Inspired by the flight of the dragonfly
All thanks to lightweight construction and function integration: with its BionicOpter, Festo has turned the highly complex flight of the dragonfly into a technical reality.
Machine learning of complex actions
From the first attempt right up to reliable execution of the task: the LearningGripper autonomously learns to orient a ball so that the correct side faces up.
Bionic technology carriers for water technology
New impetus for automation: Festo uses artificial jellyfish to visualise the communication structures and real-time diagnostics of autonomic subsystems in water.
