Novel insect-inspired flying robot developed
Scientists say the have developed a novel autonomous flying robot that mimics the rapid flight of insects. Experiments with the free-flying and agile flapping-wing robot improves the understanding of how fruit flies control aggressive escape manoeuvres, said researchers at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. The robot, named DelFly Nimble, has exceptional flight qualities which open up new drone applications, they said. Flying animals both power and control flight by flapping their wings, according to the research published in the journal Science.
