Perdue and University of Tennessee study drone wing to help UAVs sense danger faster
Military Aerospace Electronics | 11/02/2022
The oddly satisfying small domes that you press on your soda's to-go cup lid may one day save a winged drone from a nosedive.
Patterns of these invertible domes on a drone's wings would give it a way to remember in microseconds what dangerous conditions feel like and react quickly. The study, conducted by researchers at Purdue University and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is among the first demonstrations of a metamaterial that uses its shape to learn how to adapt to its surroundings on its own. The paper is published in the journal Advanced Intelligent Systems. Please click here to read the paper.
