Technical Committee on Bio-mechatronics and Bio-robotics Systems (B2S) aims at increasing the knowledge on how biological systems work, when analyzed from a "bio-mechatronic" point of view, and at exploiting such knowledge to develop innovative methodologies and technologies usable for designing and building high performance, bio inspired machines, and systems (at the macro, micro, and nan scale), mimicking humans, animals, and other living beings (bio-mimetics). Developing robot technology in conjunction with detailed knowledge of biomedical sciences is also essential for devices for biomedical applications, for example, in minimally invasive surgery, neurorehabilitation, and new industrial products.
