Dr. Robert Siddall, Lecturer of Robotics at the University of Surrey, launched the “Natural Robotics Contest” in 2022, with the idea of taking inspiration from the bio and natural context, in order to develop machine and robot protypes to help the environment and eco-systems.
Hence “biomimetic and bioinspired design is not only a potent resource for roboticists looking to develop robust engineering systems or understand the natural world. It is also a uniquely accessible entry point into science and technology.”
