Bionic Learning Network
Learning from nature…
How can bionics be used to improve the efficiency and productivity of automated motion sequences? Festo searches for innovative answers to this question through a diverse range of projects within our Bionic Learning Network. The latest technology from Festo is used in experimental prototypes, such as integrated mechatronic concepts with options for remote maintenance and diagnostics, and the latest piezoelectric valves and electric drives. Festo’s fluidic muscle, a long established component in manufacturing, is proving to be endlessly versatile in ever more amazing applications. The inspiration for the complex drive forms comes from natural phenomena in air and water, but above all from humanity itself.
The Bionic Learning Network is part of our commitment to basic and further technical training. In cooperation with students, prominent technical universities, institutes and development companies, Festo is promoting ideas and initiatives which go beyond the core business of automation and didactics, and which may well give rise to promising areas of application in the future.
