Not forgetting the “The Wild 70s” exhibition, which will invite this year’s visitors to a trip through history, with the opportunity to see many classic cars.
Permanent exhibition, Technoseum Mannheim
Find out more about the biomimetics “Bionik” exhibition here
When researchers want to bring about advances in technology, they frequently copy from nature. Because plants and animals often already offer what human civilisation desires – and in a perfect form. For example, when designing parking assist technology for cars, scientists often base their solutions on the sonar system used by bats to avoid collisions. The permanent “Bionik” biomimetics exhibition in the “Technoseum” technical museum in Mannheim is concerned with precisely the subject of how technology can learn from nature. Visitors can discover the historical background to this scientific approach along with exciting themes from current research, and can even get to know the sixty-centimetre high Nao humanoid robot and his many skills.
