Bionic Learning Network – Projects in 2006

Hannover Messe 2006

Festo has been working intensively on the topic of bionics since the early 90s. In 2006, the Bionic Learning Network was launched and started with the following projects:

 


Airacuda

Pneumatically driven fish

Fast, agile and almost silent: fluidic muscles provide efficient propulsion and smooth steering movements of the tail.

b-Ionic Airfish

Bionics meets space technology

The flow-optimised structure is derived from a penguin’s body, while the ion beam and plasma drive was originally developed for use in space.

Robotino®

Understanding technology – learning with robots

Numerous sensors, a camera and a powerful drive system give the learning system the necessary intelligence to move autonomously.
