Robotic Dragonfly called "BionicOpter " is Here
The main purpose of science is to understand nature and how it works. Science is always trying to explain nature therefore it is not surprising when scientists come up with models of living creatures in order to study them better or make use of them.
Well! Germans are already famous for their cars, they certainly know how to make cars or what! There is a German company of Designers and Engineers known as Festo. This company isn’t new and has so far been able to manufacture robotic penguins, jellyfish and birds. Company also respects the evolution of nature and their recent invention is BionicOpter, which is a robotic dragonfly which is controlled by a remote control. Dragonfly which is prehistoric is a wonderful piece of equipment. But why? Mainly because it is the only man-made device which can fly and is able to mimic an airplane, helicopter and glider as far as maneuvering is concerned.
The tilt of the wings determines the direction of thrust and amplitude control allows the intensity of the thrust to be regulated when combined the remote-controlled dragonfly can assume almost any position in space this unique way of flying is made possible by the lightweight construction and the integration of functions and components such as actuators, sensors and mechanical components as well as open and closed loop control systems are installed in a very tight space and adapted to one another.
This remote-controlled dragonfly has demonstrated wireless real-time communication which is a continuous exchange of information and has the ability to combine different sensor evaluations and identify complex events and critical states. It does seem like the perfect spy and might very well be used to scout areas without getting noticed.
This high tech shows that we are definitely stepping it up as far as the robotics is concerned. Well! This is the future ladies and gentlemen the era of robotics and science.
The BionicOpter aren’t really the first robotic mimics of nature’s creations but they do prove that scientists can create robots which are able to mimic natural movements perfectly and this opens up a whole new chapter for robotics.
