Nature-Inspired Engineering Design

Nature has plenty to teach those in the world of factory automation.
That is the idea behind the Bionic Learning Network (BLN), the brainchild of automation technology supplier Festo. Founded in 2006, the German-based BLN is a research network that looks at how nature handles tasks such as gripping, moving, positioning and control in order to improve the way those functions are performed on the factory floor. The BLN consists of a core team of Festo personnel who work with specialists at the firm, as well as other companies, universities, research institutes and inventors.
