• BionicKangaroo

    BionicKangaroo

    Like its natural model, the BionicKangaroo can recover the energy exerted on landing, store it and efficiently use it for the next jump.

  • eMotionSpheres

    eMotionSpheres

    With the eMotionSpheres, Festo shows how several flying objects can move – individually or collectively – in a coordinated manner and within a defined space.

  • MultiChoiceGripper

    MultiChoiceGripper

    It combines parallel and centric gripping – without any conversion. Its adaptive fingers adjust flexibly and gently to the widest range of shapes.

  • DualWingGenerator

    DualWingGenerator

    Self-optimising, highly efficient and inspired by bird flight: an extraordinary wind power station that uses two opposing pairs of wings to generate power.

  • BionicOpter

    BionicOpter

    All thanks to lightweight construction and function integration: with its BionicOpter, Festo has turned the complex flight of the dragonfly into a technical reality.

  • WaveHandling

    WaveHandling

    With its pneumatic wave movements, the modular conveyor belt is able to transport objects to their destination and sort them at the same time.

  • AquaJellies 2.0

    AquaJellies 2.0

    New impetus for automation: Festo uses artificial jellyfish to visualise the communication and real-time diagnostics of autonomic subsystems in water.

  • LearningGripper

    LearningGripper

    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 Learning Network

Highlights 2013–2014 

Whether at sea, on land or in the air: our bionic projects from the years 2013 and 2014 once again show off important aspects of integrated automation – in a wide variety of designs, applications and environments.
