Bioinspired & Biomimetic Systems

SR - BeeDrone

Living organisms represent the most sophisticated robust and adaptable autonomous systems we know. The approach of engineering autonomy is therefore complemented by reverse-engineering of biological systems to uncover new principles for the design and control of robots. Biomimetics builds on our University’s excellence in the physical and biological sciences drawing on world-leading empirical research on model organisms to synthesise novel soft robotic and biohybrid systems.
