ID Code 058870
Course Title BIO-INSPIRED SYSTEMS
Course Type MONO-DISCIPLINARY COURSE
Credits (CFU / ECTS) 5.0
Course Description The course introduces the basic concepts of bioinspired systems and biomimetics and it is mainly focused on the synthesis of mechanical systems taking inspiration from biological world. The course mainly focuses on problems related to kinematics and dynamics of motion (locomotion, flight, swimming), handling, sensing, force generation and amplification. Although the course has a strong mechanical connotation, bioinspiration is an interesting approach that can be profitably applied to many fields. For this reason, an insight of bioinspired approaches applied to very different disciplines (eg. Architecture, design, electronics, soft computing, chemistry, etc.) will be presented by invited speakers. Contents will be supported by critical analyses of successful stories. During the course students will be encouraged to design and develop bioinspired applications, based on the observation and reproduction of winning approaches already developed in nature.
