Researchers have studied how mosquitoes survive the impact of raindrops more than 50 times their body mass.
Dr. David Hu, professor of mechanical engineering and biology at Georgia Institute of Technology, says mosquitoes could provide clues to building flying robots of the future.
In a new study, Dr. Hu and his team of researchers studied how mosquitoes survive the impact of raindrops that are more than 50 times their body mass.
“This could directly impact the research for a robust flying vehicle,” Hu told Yahoo News. “That’s important. The dream is that these autonomous robots will be able to fly outdoors.” , , , Read Complete Report
