GRASP’s Nano Quadrotors performed various complex formations


Nano Quadrotor is a robotic flying device developed by Alex Kushleyev, Vijay Kumar, and Daniel Mellinger at the GRASP (General Robotics, Automation, Sensing, and Perception) lab, University of Pennsylvania. They have recently released a video of their new invention with different complex formations.

This flying device is named with ‘nano’ because of its small-sized appearance. The quadrotors include the capability of autonomous positioning, balancing, and swarm behavior (an image of this performance is displayed in the above picture).

GRASP’s robotics researchers joined with KMel Robotics for programming a swarm of quadrotors to fly in different moves like formation flight, trajectory planning, and a remarkable figure-eight pattern. These formations performed by nano quadrotors are shown in the below video:

In this video, you can also observe the nano quadrotor’s autonomous swarm behavior, linear arrangements, and an impressive fly around obstacles.

At the end of the last year, there was a similar invention of this kind developed by the Raffaello D’Andrea. He recently made his flying robots to build a six-meter polystyrene tower in an exhibition.

Overall, GRASP’s nano quadrotors looks as a valuable invention for the future, and it will definitely prove to be a useful device in the critical areas like light construction, search and rescue missions, warfare, and surveillance.
