Meet Bat Bot, New Fly­ing Bat-like Drone

The Economic Times - - Disruption: Startups & Tech -


Holy drone, Bat­man! Me­chan­i­cal mas­ter­minds have spawned the Bat Bot, a soar­ing, sweep­ing and div­ing ro­bot that may even­tu­ally fly cir­cles around other drones. Be­cause it mim­ics the unique and more flex­i­ble way bats fly, this 3-ounce pro­to­type could do a bet­ter and safer job get­ting into dis­as­ter sites and scop­ing con­struc­tion zones than bulky drones with spin­ning ro­tors, said Seth Hutchin­son,co-au­thor of a study re­leased on Wed­nes­day in the jour­nal Sci­ence Ro­bot­ics.
