Plant Roots Mimicked to Develop Soil-Monitoring Robots

Plant Roots Mimicked to Develop Soil-Monitoring Robots | Biomimicry | Scoop.it

"...a number of technologies have emerged from the study and mimicry of plants and the way in which their roots function. One such example is a project called the Innovative Robotic Artefacts Inspired by Plant Roots for Soil Monitoring - or PLANTOID for short - a European Commission-funded research project into the behaviour of roots with the aim of developing advanced soil monitoring technologies."

Plant-mimicking Robots Could Help Explore Our World

Plant-mimicking Robots Could Help Explore Our World | Biomimicry | Scoop.it

"In the world of biomimicry, plants haven't necessarily been overlooked, but compared to animals -- especially in robotics -- there have been far fewer projects inspired by them. That's why it's neat to read about a project that revolves completely around finding ways to build robots that mimic plants, in particular their roots."
