Robotic Fly/Bee

Robotic insects make first controlled flight – [youtube.com] The demonstration of the first controlled flight of an insect-sized robot is the culmination of more than a decade’s work, led by researchers at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard. Half the size of […]

Ultralight, Remote-controlled Robotic Dragonfly

Festo – BionicOpter – [youtube.com] With the BionicOpter, Festo has technically mastered the highly complex flight characteristics of the dragonfly. Just like its model in nature, this ultralight flying object can fly in all directions, hover in mid-air and glide without beating its wings. BionicOpter – Inspired by dragonfly flight – [festo.com] Thirteen degrees of […]

Nano Quadrotor Swarm

The GRASP (robotics and automation) lab at Univ Penn is doing some fascinating work with swarms of small flying quadrotors. A Swarm of Nano Quadrotors – [youtube.com] VIDEO Experiments performed with a team of nano quadrotors at the GRASP Lab, University of Pennsylvania. Vehicles developed by KMel Robotics. Special thanks to Professor Daniel Lee for […]
