• BionicANTs


    For the BionicANTs, Festo has not only technically implemented the delicate anatomy of ants, but also their cooperative behaviour.

  • eMotionButterflies


    Thanks to an intelligent indoor GPS with infrared technology, the artificial butterflies are able to move in an enclosed space without colliding. Find out more!

  • FlexShapeGripper


    By inverting its elastic silicone cap, the gripper can pick up, gather and set back down the widest range of objects in a single procedure.

Bionic Learning Network

Projects 2015 

In 2015, the team from the Bionic Learning Network once again dealt with the question of what the production of the future can learn from nature. In this respect, the BionicANTs and the eMotionButterflies show in very different ways how individual subsystems can be networked to form an intelligent entire system. Over and above this, the FlexShapeGripper revealed a gripper that can be used variably for the most diverse functions.
