Small Vehicles Self-Assemble To Create A Powerful Aircraft
“Researchers at the ETH Zurich’s Institute for Dynamics Systems and Control have developed the “Distributed Flight Array”, a flying platform consisting of multiple autonomous single propeller vehicles that are able to dock with one another to create a larger and more powerful aircraft. The individual vehicles of the DFA have their own propellers to lift them into the air, but have an uncontrolled and erratic flight pattern . However, these vehicles can join together to become a larger flight platform capable of maintaining a coordinated flight by sharing data to determine how much thrust is needed for the DFA to take-off”
