The Discovery Pod: Season 3, Episode 2

Mimicking the power of the insect world, engineers at the University of Adelaide are researching the potential of swarm robots and other technologies inspired by the natural world, for a variety of applications from mining on the moon to complex rescue missions.  

This week, host Professor Andy Lowe sits down with Dr Noune Melkounian a Senior Lecturer at the University of Adelaide’s School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering. Join us, as we learn how imagination and innovation collide in the School of Engineering, and how the study of biomimicry can take our tech to the next level.
