+ E-insect-bird, a robot spy, able to fly.

Defensive structures of countries around the world increasingly use unmanned observation vehicles. these devices are made on the basis of different technologies, but masterpieces like the new drone, created by engineers laboratory U.S. Air Force, while very rare. Miniaturization is leaps and bounds over the world of high technology, that's spyware Drones are incredibly compact.
Scientists Laboratory Micro-Aviary at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base have created an ultra aircraft, made by image and likeness of the usual dragonfly. Thus, the size of the main body of the machine is comparable to the dimensions of the digital chip. In this small housing developers to fit a motor to which you put the two wings, identical strekozinym. The plans of inventors - placed inside the mikrobespilotnika still a little camera that will broadcast the video in real time.
The engineers have achieved not only this. In particular, they came up with ultra-sensitive motion sensor that determines the position drone with high accuracy, "in the range of about tenth of an inch," that is 2.5 mm. The laboratory has begun to develop larger drones, which are their wings like birds to move through the air.

+ SmartBird - robot seagull.

The German company Festo, also known as one of the organizers of the program Bionic Learning Network, has introduced a new product - a robot seagull SmartBird. This model - a practical embodiment of the technologies presented earlier (one of the projects company - robot penguins at the exhibition in Hanover). It should be noted that for a new flying robot does not use lift of the gas. Construction SmartBird designed by analogy with the structure of the body of herring gull. Management and the actual flight is like a bird: the rotation of the body, turns the head and tail position and flapping wings. Moreover, the wings are not just committing flapping up and down movement, but also simultaneously rotate at different angles to the oncoming flow. Everything happens like this bird.
The skeleton is made of carbon fiber robot composite, and the shell - polyurethane foam, which made it possible to reduce the weight of the model to 450 wingspan of 2 meters and the length of the body - 1 m and the movement of all parts meet the four servos and a motor, fed by a lithium-polymer batteries. The total power consumption of the device - 23 watts.
Any specific application for SmartBird yet been invented: the project is part of the mining bionic technology to further create more advanced models.

+ Phasma - a tiny insect-robot.

Phasma - a tiny six-legged cursorial robot that duplicates the motion of a living organism. Development owns Takram Design Engineering. Robot designers have tried to show life through movement rather than form. A detailed examination shows that the mechanism that allows the robot to move around, pretty simple. It provides smooth and stable movement through alternation of the legs during gait, as some insects. The developers added a remote-controlled robot.
+ Nano Air Vehicle - an autonomous flying vehicle the size of a hummingbird.

The California-based aerospace company Aeronvironment successfully tested an unmanned robotic aircraft called NAV - "nano air vehicle". Currently, NAV may be called the smallest aircraft device, because its dimensions do not exceed the size of a small bird. Until now, such robots were not on board their own batteries, and power was applied to the wire, limiting movement.
Creating the device was initiated by DARPA Pentagon project (DARPA) in 2007, now Aeronvironment with success reported on the results.
Test flights have shown that this version of the device can fly for 20 seconds at a time. Therefore, a robot bird waiting improvements. However, this short promenade in air showed good prospects of this direction robotics. And so, that DARPA provided Aeronvironment a second grant of $ 2.1 million, in order to build improved version of the aircraft.
Specialists of the company ordered a promise to create a vehicle weighing no more than 10 grams, which will be able to stay in the air for an extended period, accelerating to 10 meters per second. In addition, NAV should resist impulses wind of about 2.5 meters per second and controlled at a distance of 1 km. Sophisticated robots equipped with systems gps, planning to use for research purposes.
