Description

Advertisement

The approach of combining biology and engineering is often also called biomimetics in English. The basic principle of biomimetics is learning from nature. The idea on bionics/biomimetics is to understand the principles behind nature´s constructions and to transfer them in to technical systems and devices.

One major application of biomimetics is the field of biomaterials. Spider silk, for example, is both light and flexible and three times stronger than steel. Such material properties are of interest for various technical fibers. In robotics animal models such as Geckos are used as inspiration for the development of climbing robots.
