This Morphing Drone Takes Flights Inspired by Nature
This morphing drone signifies a new era of aerial robotics, one where nature and technology merge to produce a feat of engineering.
Drones come in many forms. The most common variations are fixed wing and rotary. Both types are optimized to function in precise conditions. Fixed wings allow for sustained flight as the airfoil lets the drone glide. This boosts efficiency during windy conditions. However, fixed wing drones aren’t as nimble as their rotary counterparts. So how does one get the best of both worlds – agility and sustained flight?
An answer may come from Switzerland.
