Autonomous Robotic Plane Flies Indoors at MIT 31025

For decades, academic and industry researchers have been working on control algorithms for autonomous helicopters — robotic helicopters that pilot themselves, rather than requiring remote human guidance. Dozens of research teams have competed in a series of autonomous-helicopter challenges posed by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI); progress has been so rapid that the last two challenges have involved indoor navigation without the use of GPS.

Passive Walking Robot Propelled By Its Own Weight #DigInfo

Simple Mechanical Robotic Leg Design – 11057

This robotic leg design is usefull for people who finds it hard to walk by himself. This robot is walking without a source of energy (of course it takes power from it’s potential energy) It doesn’t use any kind of motor or control. It is made of aluminum and it contains only mechanical components. The robot has three main parts, upper leg, lower leg and ankles.
