Their goal was to create a bird-like drone that’s capable of both cruising long distances at high speeds while remaining highly maneuverable.
A robot with wings that move like a hawk’s can fly more stably and nimbly than other flying robots – and it uses less power, extending flight time
Insights into the joint movements and feather surface structures that help birds control their wing shape could help robotic flyers move more deftly.
A robotic pigeon that can change its wing shape like a real bird paves the way for creating more agile aircraft, and offers a new way to study bird flight. R...
Since the Wright Flyer, engineers have strived to develop flying machines with morphing wings that can control flight as deftly as birds. Birds morph their wing planform parameters ...
Researchers combined laboratory and simulated experiments on 3-D-printed wings to find the ideal wing shape
Inspired by a fruit fly, this tiny robot insect manages to twist and bank with astonishing speed.
