New Drone Can Mimic Birds By Perching On Trees

Currently, drones are huge in size which makes them difficult to use in some cases. A small company by the name of Vishwa Robotics has come up with the idea to make bird-like drones which are similar to birds in size and can also perch onto a branch or window sill just like them.

The Boston-based company is led by Bhargav Gajjar, who studied dozens of different bird species to help develop his drone. He ultimately drew inspiration from the American Kestrel. The robotic limbs with clawed ends are aided by an on-board camera which helps positions the limbs and claws before the drone lands.

These robotic bird legs have been designed as extensions or add-ons to current military drones. The limbs also act as shock absorbers and have the ability to cut deeply into a perch, making them more grounded once they have landed. The legs also allow the drone to walk in situations when take-off is not feasible. All in all, this new design for drone limbs is a great advancement for the overall technology of UAV’s, especially those used by the military.
