driven takes a look at bionics

Engineers from all over the world are getting inspiration from nature and developing technology at the highest level: bionic prostheses, exoskeletons for children, and even a salamander with a spine.

Spring has come, nature is awakening, and the new issue of driven, the maxon motor magazine, is out. Rising to the occasion, our editors turned their research interest to the fauna and flora – just like many engineers these days. They copy nature and are creating better and better products. The beneficiaries of this research include wearers of prosthetic legs or hands, as bionic systems come with functions that come surprisingly close to nature's originals. The current issue of our magazine gives two examples, as well as a list of today's most exciting animal robots. You will be surprised! You can also learn about the successful motion control specialists at maxon motor and about the use of DC motors as generators.
