About

The idea on Bionics - Biomimetics at Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences is to understand the principles and systems behind nature’s constructions and to transfer them to technical systems and devices.

Overview

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. Another application is the development of water-repellent, self-cleaning materials, which were inspired by the surface structure of the lotus leaf.
