Illini Bat Bot, B2

In an earlier post I noted the really cool Bat inspired flying robot from our local Aerospace Robotics and Control Lab.

Continuing development, they released a video showing the latest version of Bat Bot (B2), clad in a Silicone membrane that resembles natural bat wings.

The videos show that, at least some of the time, this device sure looks like a bat in flight!

Of course, there is much more to do, including working out how to navigate!

But this is a really nice job, and a great result so far.
