eMotion Robot: Butterfly Smart Robot

Flying is a recurring theme in the Bionic Learning Network. The developers channelled their knowledge gained from the projects on the BionicOpter and the eMotionSpheres into the bionic butterflies. They combine the ultralight construction of artificial insects with coordinated flying behaviour in a collective.

BionicAnt Robot: Insectoid Smart Robot

Like their natural role models, the BionicANTs work together under clear rules. They communicate with each other and coordinate their actions and movements among each other. The artificial ants thus demonstrate how autonomous individual components can solve a complex task together working as an overall networked system.

Hadrian Robot: A Giant Bricklaying Robot

the Hadrian is an “end-to-end” bricklaying robot that automates the very labor intensive process of laying down bricks. The Hadrian is being pitched as a game-changer capable of completing the brickwork on a house in just a few days at a lower cost and a higher quality level than manual bricklaying methods. After achieving impressive results with the Hadrian 105, the company is preparing to build the next generation robot prototype, the Hadrian X, reports Business Insider.

Asimo Robot: Smart Humanoid Robot

It's a humanoid robot created by Honda in 2000. Honda began developing humanoid robots in the 1980s, including several prototypes that preceded ASIMO. It was the company's goal to create a walking robot. ASIMO has the ability to recognize moving objects, postures, gestures, its surrounding environment, sounds and faces, which enables it to interact with humans.

Olly Robot: The Smart Home Robot

When it comes to what the robot can actually do, it is similar to Amazon's Echo or Google Home. It can respond to your questions by looking up information for you, and can control all of your smart devices and internet-connected products you may have around your home. Where it differs from its rivals is in its ability to be proactive. It could predict whether you might want to listen to music when you get home from work for example, as well as what you might like that music to be.

Caterpillar Robot: Flexible Robot

Researchers at the Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw, using the liquid crystal elastomer technology, originally developed in the LENS Institute in Florence, demonstrated a bioinspired micro-robot capable of mimicking caterpillar gaits in natural scale. The 15-millimeter long soft robot harvests energy from green light and is controlled by spatially modulated laser beam. Apart from travelling on flat surfaces, it can also climb slopes, squeeze through narrow slits and transport loads.
