10 years Bionics Center at TUM: Technical Innovations Based on Nature

The “Leonardo da Vinci Center for Bionics” was established over a decade ago at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Since then, the cross-faculty research platform has been promoting the technical development of operating principles that nature concocted in the evolutionary process: The creative potential in the “Test Laboratory of Nature” is translated into technical solutions. For example, the Multi-Arm Snake-Like Manipulator-System was developed at the Department of Microtechnology and an intelligent building shell arose in the architectural department. The new head of the Bionics Center is now Professor Harald Luksch. (Mehr in: Pressemitteilungen – idw – Informationsdienst Wissenschaft)
