Learning from nature.
Obstacle avoidance in honeybees
We are fascinated by how animals fly, navigate and solve complex problems!
Our research focuses on seeking insights into the sensorimotor systems of animals that enable complex behaviours like flight, navigating long distances, working together in groups/swarms, etc..
Using animals like bees and birds as inspirational and prototypical models we are always looking to design and engineer smarter robots.
Towards these goals, we strive to conduct multi-disciplinary research that crosses between engineering, organismal biology and robotics.
