The word bionics is a neologism of biology and technology. Bionics is an interdisciplinary science that studies the structure and functioning of biological systems and draws conclusions from them that can be used in electronics and information technology.
In bionics, phenomena that occur in nature are analyzed and translated into technical processes and models. The findings from biological studies can be incorporated into information-processing and optical systems and into control systems. They range from sensing with sensors, to data processing of biological data, to implementation and control of processes.
