Birds are agile but now robots can emulate their movements. Using new insights on how pigeons control joints during flight by fanning their feathers in or out, agile drones could soon become a reality.
This kind of research paves the way for the manufacture of more agile aircraft with the ability to navigate better in rough air, forests and tight spaces such as between buildings, as birds do.
Will next generation agile drones fly as skillfully as birds in urban landscapes?
