A fully autonomous and inspired by the flight mechanics of bats drone was developed by researchers at the University of Illinois Seth Hutchinson . Because the drone flight mimics the shape of nocturnal bats consumes much less energy than multiprocessor no longer need to use the engines so continued. according to the website of the university , the drones would be used to monitor and control the progress of construction.
“The building constructions projects are tough , and rarely run the way they are planned , ” Hutchinson said. “Keeping track of whether the building is being prepared in the right way and at the right time is not trivial. Los drones may bats, flying over the work, compare the planned construction model with built so far. “
Chung has already been working in the development process robotic winged flight. In the past, it has been developed that have mimicked the aircraft flying birds . E ste project is a continuation of previous work, but the flight of the bat is even more complex than the birds.
The team believes that this project has the potential to revolutionize the airline industry robotics, and its functionality is not limited to construction. Drones bats have the ability to also be used in package delivery, surveillance, search and rescue, as in many other applications.
