Summary

Biomimetics is an innovative paradigm shift based on biodiversity for sustainability. Biodiversity is not only the result of evolutionary adaption but also the optimized solution of “an epic combinatorial chemistry” for sustainability, because the diversity has been acquired by “biological processes and technology,” including “production processes,” “operating principles,” and “control systems,” all of which differ from “human technology.” In recent decades, biomimetics has gained a great deal of industrial interest because of its unique solutions for engineering problems. In this book, cutting-edge researchers have contributed related research results from the viewpoint of industrial applications of biomimetics. There are two types of applications of biomimetics. One starts with engineering tasks to solve an engineering problem using biomimetics, and the other starts with the knowledge of biology, applying it to engineering fields. This book discusses both approaches.
