Centre for Biomimetic and Natural Technologies

Welcome to the Centre for Biomimetics and Natural Technologies at the Rhine Waal University of Applied Sciences!

Our multi-disciplinary research centre gathers together several colleagues' laboratory groups, all focused on developing tools and machines for the study of the complex, dynamic and ever-changing environments and ecosystems which surround us. Our students and staff are involved in building and field-testing robotic boats and small submersibles, robotic sensor and actuator systems, water havesting and space applications. Many, but not all, of the systems draw their inspiration from the very animals & habitats they are designed to study.

In the pages that follow, you will find information about our research, people, facilities, robots and sensors.
