【现实版蚁人:形如昆虫来去自如】

【现实版蚁人:形如昆虫来去自如】荷兰DelFly研究项目公布了最新发明:一个名为Nimble的灵活机器人。其具有四翼系统,能像真正的昆虫一样自由飞行,可控三个飞行轴,通过改变每个机翼襟翼的方式向左或向右移动,目前电池可供单次飞行超过五分钟。该项目称其“已经为许多现实世界的任务做好了准备,无论意味着什么”。

A research project from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands created the latest iteration of the DelFly robot called the Nimble. It’s a super agile robot with a quad-wing flapping system, and it’s capable of flying just as nimbly as a real winged insect.

Using its four wings, the DelFly can control three axes of flight, and it goes left or right by changing the way each one of its wings flap. It’s eerily similar to a real insect. Currently, the DelFly can fly around for more than five minutes on a full battery with a range of more than 1 kilometer (0.62 miles).

You might be asking yourself, “What can a flying robot be used for?” The DelFly’s project page states that it is “ready for many real-world tasks,” whatever that means.

There is a purely scientific application for the DelFly that includes studying and replicating insect flight dynamics and high-agility maneuvers, like the ones that fruit flies use to evade predators or humans.
