Researchers at Delft University of Technology have developed a tiny flying robot which is self-steering and weights just 20 grammes.
The DelFly Explorer, which resembles a dragonfly, is battery-powered and carries two tiny cameras and a computer. This not only allows the robot to avoid objects but allows users to monitor what it ‘sees’.
The university says the robot is unique because it is so light and because it is not controlled by an external computer.
