Learning from nature is a principle that has inspired many technical developments. There is even a field of science concerned with this issue: bionics. Many problems that arise in technical applications have already been solved by biological systems because evolution has had millions of years to search for a solution. Understanding nature’s approach allows us to apply the same principles for the solution of technical problems.
