Bionic Learning Network – Projects in 2009

Hanover Fair 2009

Autonomous, flexible, adaptive and self-regulating processes are becoming increasingly important in automation. In the Bionic Learning Network, nature points the way and provides the impetus for some surprising applications – with maximum performance yet minimum energy consumption.

 


 

AirPenguin

Autonomous flying in a sea of air

Autonomous flying through a defined air space monitored by ultrasound transmission stations. Agile and easily manoeuvrable with a 3D structure which utilises the Fin Ray Effect® at the front and back.

AquaPenguin

Autonomous navigation

Autonomous manoeuvring – in tight spaces and even backwards. The 3D sonar system enables collective behaviour – similar to that of dolphins – through communication with the environment.

Interactive Wall

Architecture moving in real time

Interaction with the observer: the seven wall elements transform the behaviour of people standing at the wall into motion, light and music in real time.
