Bionic Bird Project for Engineering Students
Hello friends, your Engineer buddy, have brought you a new project idea for your engineering projects. Today’s idea is world’s first furtive civilian drone. It’s a bionic bird.
The unique characteristic of this bionic bird is that it flies not with the rotating wings like in helicopter drones but uses its wings like a bird in up and down motion to fly. The most interesting is it can fly in a group of the real bird without even making them realize that it’s unreal. This bionic bird like drone is shown attracting other bird and predators.
Following is the demonstration:-
Construction and working
The bird’s body is constructed with high quality wear resistance foam. The wings are made of the carbon fibres for weight reduction and increased durability. It is incorporated with a Bluetooth 4.0 for communication via smartphone. Soon it would be controlled with an android application too.
There is an on board battery which allows it fly for around 8 to 10 minutes and took 12 min to charge with the egg shaped charger. Presently it does not have too much practical applications but later version would have improvements such as inbuilt HD camera with live streaming, control with a wrist band, and hovering ability like a humming bird. This drone can be operated within a range of 100 meters.
Following is the video showing its internal gear system. The video represented rotatory motion conversion to reciprocatory motion in bionic bird.
It is sort of a good toy to play around for some time.
Hope you liked this article and you really loved the concept than don’t forget to share with your friends and amaze them with the bot.
