Title of the Paper: BionicsAbstract:
Bionics or also called as biomimetics is the applications of methods and system in nature to the study and design of engineering systems and modern technology. The term bionics was coined by Jack E. Steele in 1958.
Bionics is an interdisciplinary field on the way to establish itself a science. Bionics deals with man’s use of structures, methods and processes found in biological systems in relation to technical development. To look for inspiration in nature or to study nature intensively in order to learn from it is not new to artists and engineers. The works of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) are some of histories best documented examples.
In the quest of perfection, man is trying his best to develop biological systems with engineering precision, and somewhere in the near future we could have a truly bionic (artificial) man. The good thing is that it could help the disabled and ailing in a great way.
At the present day the bionics is strongly influenced by variety of disciplines viz. robotics, bioengineering with nanotechnology taking center stage because it applies detailed precision.
This seminar aims at providing at insight on the current research of bionics.
