Stanford Research Lab Is Unlocking the Secrets of Biological Flight martedý, 05 Agosto 2014 - 11:35 PM - 3 , 5 giorni ago - 3 Letture - top stories - 1-CreativeCow (Seattle, Washington--August 5, 2014) Stanford's research lab, Lentink Lab, is unlocking the secrets of biological flight in order to create innovative flying robots. The lab is headed by Mechanical Engineering Professor David Lentink, who investigates the wing movements of birds using high speed cameras capable of shooting at 3,200 frames per second. The video footage recorded is being used to reveal the intricacies of the bird’s every movement. According to Lentink, micro flying vehicles created by humans are facing the same problems of cluttered environments or turbulence that birds have been facing for millions of years. By studying how birds have solved these problems we are able to mimic their strategies and develop technologies that will progress robotic flight.
