A Tiny Four-Winged Robotic Insect Flies More Like The Real Thing
Many insects are powerful, agile flyers. One reason is that most have four wings, which gives them fine control over their direction of flight and their orientation through pitch, roll, and yaw adjustment.
In recent years, aerodynamicists, engineers, and roboticists have attempted to copy insect-like flight by building tiny flying robots. The main thing they’ve discovered is just how difficult this is. READ MORE ON: MIT TECHNOLOGY REVIEW
