Abstract

In this chapter we address the current trends and the technical prospects of biomimetics as a field of research and development. Two general approaches were chosen – one from within the field of biomimetics, and one from outside. This involved, first of all, an analysis of general technology foresight studies and a correlation of the biomimetics R&D fields and trends towards the particularly promising fields of technology. Then, by means of case studies, a close look is taken at the medium-term potentials of particularly promising areas of biomimetics.
