Robots in Water - Land - Air

We develop embedded hardware and software for our partner Festo Bionic Learning Network.

Description


AquaJelly
A swarm of autonomously controlled jellyfish











AirPenguin
A swarm of autonomously flying objects that
come close to its natural archetype in terms
of agility and manoeuvrability









SmartBird
An ultra light yet powerful flight model
with excellent aerodynamic qualities, extreme agility

and incomparable efficiency









SmartInversion
SmartInversion is a helium filled flight model, that uses the third propulsion type, called as inversion.
It has an ultra light embedded system on it and can be steered by using a mobile phone








BionicOpter
The BionicOpter is a complex, lightweight flying object, inspired by the natural dragonfly. The BionicOpter is able to fly complex flight manoeuvres.
