Bio-hybrid and Collective Systems

Bio-Hybrid Systems Lab

Living organisms coupled with technological systems

We investigate and develop systems that combine natural and artificial components (bio-hybrid system) for a diverse set of applications. For example, in the project flora robotica we mix robots with natural plants, but instead of mere automated gardening or agriculture, we assign equal roles to both parties to create useful synergies. In general, the mixture of robots with natural organisms represents a new emerging field in bio-robotics with high potential.
