How can the Aerospace industry learn from nature?
– How do birds interact with wind? – How do insects stabilize their flight? – How do blind fish avoid obstacles? – What can we learn from biology to help build better unmanned air vehicles? This exciting lecture will explain how engineering approaches can be used to study biological fluid dynamics, and show how this can provide inspiration for the development of autonomous systems.
