• 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


    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


    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

Projects 2013  

In 2013 Festo used its bionic projects to demonstrate important aspects of integrated automation – from lightweight design and the integration of functions through to permanent real-time communication and machine learning. The coordinated behaviour of several systems in a limited space was visualised by the AquaJellies 2.0, which Festo has been continually developing since 2008.
