BionicOpter Robotic Dragonfly Was Inspired by Complex Flight Characteristics of A Dragonfly

Dragonfly has complex flight characteristics, and Festo has managed to incorporate these sophisticated mechanisms into BionicOpter robotic dragonfly. Just like a real dragonfly, this robot is extremely light, can fly in all directions, hover in mid-air and glide without beating its wings. In order to control flapping frequency and twisting of each wing, there’s amplitude controller incorporated in it, tilting the wings can determine the direction of thrust. By combining all those aspects, this remote-controlled dragonfly can be directed to any position in space.

The combination of lightweight construction and components such as sensors, actuators, control systems enable this robot a unique way of flying. We can think of several cool tasks that BionicOpter robotic dragonfly can be really useful, such as: exchange secret messages, spy cams, science projects, explore hard-to-reach places, etc.
