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. Yet not only the cooperative behaviour of the artificial ants is amazing. Even their production method is unique. The laser-sintered components are embellished with visible conductor structures in the 3D MID process. They thereby take on design and electrical functions at the same time. In the actuator technology used in the legs, Festo utilises the benefits of piezo technology; the bending actuators used can be controlled quickly and precisely, work on little energy and do not need much space.
