Airborne Animals: the New Flying Robot
Airborne animals are flight adaptations that will help a couple of scientists in order to design flying robots from soaring without a sound, sleeping midflight, to navigating turbulence. Airborne animals have been explained in the 18 new studies that have been published only December 15 in the Journal Interface Focus. Even though people have been creating these flying machines since a long time ago, these new studies have said that there is a lot of things that can be learned from looking closely at how bats, insects, and birds take flight, maneuver to safe landings and keep themselves aloft.
Flying drones are gained their popularity in the world. They are applied in order to snap selfies, to photograph from above and even deliver packages when Amazon succeeded to send its first commercial delivery by drone in Cambridge on December 7 in the United Kingdom. According to experts, it is not easy to improve hoe these airborne animals fly. Luckily, there are a couple of flying animals which has been inspired by many scientists. There are more than 10,000 species of birds, more than 1 million insect species, and 4,000 species of bats that have evolved more than millions of years to take to the air by spreading their wings. And many experts said that the flight adaptation of these species have not been studied before.
Meanwhile, scientists have been working on it because the demand for maneuverable and small flying robots have been grown which can perform a couple of tasks. There are a lot of researchers that have investigated a couple of questions about animal aerodynamics and biology. For instance a lot of scientists explored the ability of owls to fly that could muffle noise which is finding that the large wing size of the animals and the shape, texture and feature fringes that have been strategically places all work together in order to help owls soundlessly glide.
There are also a couple of researchers questioned about how frigate birds could sleep while they do long migrations. The first recordings have been collected by scientists about flight brain activity for these birds. They also have discovered that the animals can rest both brain hemispheres in the same time.
A couple of scientists wondered how fruit flies can stay aloft even they got their wings damaged. They also learn about the insects that have been compensated about the
