Article: Industry Trends on Nature and Engineering

Automation GT has a new article out today on about the latest industry trends in natural inspiration in engineering.

For as long as we have been developing robots, we have been taking inspiration from nature for our robotic designs. Some of the earliest examples of very primitive robotic science were in automatons made to look like humans and animals, some of which date back to ancient times. And much later, when robotics were introduced in the industrial sector, a standard robot frequently incorporated a robotic arm, copied after our most familiar natural system–our own anatomy.

Lately, there have been lots of announcements of robotic designs inspired by nature. For, Automation GT’s Rachel Greenberg selected some of the most interesting examples of bio-inspired design in recent news.
