Abstract

At a greatly simplified level it is possible to distinguish three main strands of biomimetic research and development with respect to the time period and approach, whereby the contribution of the third strand consists largely of efforts to overcome the limitations in the two preceding strands. The three strands can be characterized as: a) functional morphology – form and function; b) biocybernetics – information processing, sensorics (sensor technology), and robotics; and c) nanobiomimetics – molecular self-organisation and nanotechnology.
