GrowBot

Towards a new generation of plant-inspired growing artefacts

FET Proactive: emerging paradigms and communities
Research and Innovation Action
Grant agreement n. 824074

Welcome to
GrowBot project

GrowBot proposes a disruptively new paradigm of movement in robotics inspired by the moving-by-growing abilities of climbing plants.

The GrowBot objective is to develop low-mass and low-volume robots capable of anchoring themselves, negotiating voids, and more generally climbing, where current climbing robots based on wheels, legs, or rails would get stuck or fall.

The Project

GrowBot is based on a strongly interdisciplinary character and can open the way for a new technological paradigm around the concept of growing robots, fostering a European innovation eco-system for several high-tech sectors.
