Future flying robots could be inspired by the aerodynamics of gliding snakes

Posted by in categories: physics, robotics/AI

A hidden mechanism for achieving glides of hundreds of feet is revealed by computational modelling.

Scientists are currently thinking of ways to create robots resembling the gliding motion of flying snakes, according to a study published today (Dec .13) in Physics of Fluids.

‘Undulations’ encourage lift.


The researchers anticipate their findings will improve our comprehension of gliding motion and result in a more effective design for future airborne snake robots.
