Join us on 27 October 2021, 13 PM CEST for the upcoming seminar in PAI:
Spiders and their Webs – in the context of soft-robotics
Unravelling Spider Webs and Silks
Speaker: Fritz Vollrath, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, U.K.
Webs are fascinating examples of Nature’s 'Design by Evolution' which is powerful process able to generate highly functional and supremely efficient materials, devices and systems. Silk is an excellent examples for outstanding performance of a natural material, and this talk shall explore a few characteristics and put them into perspective.

The general guiding theme and vision of the new Empa Materials and Technology Centre of Robotics is to develop novel soft robotic systems for infrastructure maintenance and environmental monitoring. The main research method of the Centre is Physical Artificial Intelligence (PAI).
The center is based on an institutional partnership between Imperial College London and the Empa. Research thrusts include aerial robotics platform development, soft robotics, material science and digital infrastructure systems.
Registration is closed. However, we will gladly welcome you.
