FUTURE LIFE ON EARTH LOOKS GREEN

197 views
Within the EU-funded project “flora robotica” two essentials for our future life on earth are being merged: technology and nature. Following a simple yet radically new idea, an international team of researchers is envisioning and constructing a bio-hybrid society of
robots and natural plants. This bio-hybrid society will be able to reach human-collaborative goals by communicating, working, and growing together.

Flora robotica takes the first steps toward intelligent plants that can adaptively and sustainably grow our built environment - from urban furniture to public spaces, to buildings, to entire cities.

ITU is a partner in the project along with:
University of Paderborn, Germany (coordinator)
Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland
Centre for Information Technology and Architecture, Denmark
Cybertronica Research, Germany
Karl-Franzens-University Graz, Austria
