This Ladybug-Inspired Super Drone Buggy Self-Rights Itself After a Fall
The super drone can flip back by moving the wings backward and then directing them 180 degrees forward, just like a ladybug. Drones encounter falling in human-less terrains, making it very important for them to get back to flying without any external help. The drone has a forewing called the elytra and a hind wing with a body of around 55cm long. This design is a replica of the original wing design of the ladybug. The drone’s wings are fixed, unlike the real beetle that flaps both its wings.
