Biological sensors found in nature have some of the best designs with incomprehensible features. Many biological species found in nature are equipped with extraordinary sensing systems that work on diverse sensing principles. Many species use micromechanical biological sensors that work on complex sensing principles. Using the biological sensors, these species evaluate various physical parameters that are needed for their locomotion and survival. Nature has already solved many problems that humans are tackling with. Therefore, translating nature based engineering solutions to artificial manmade technologies could lead to many innovative solutions to solve crucial problems.
