Parsing Science - Mosquito-inspired Biotechnology

media
posted on 08.07.2020 by Ryan Watkins, Doug Leigh, Richard Bomphrey
What if mosquitos weren't just irritating bugs, but instead were bio-inspiring features? In episode 78, we talk with Richard Bomphrey from the University of London’s Royal Veterinary College about how mosquitoes can detect surfaces using the airflow caused by the movement of their own wings … and the autonomous drones he developed to mimic them. His article "Aerodynamic imaging by mosquitoes inspires a surface detector for autonomous flying vehicles,” (open-access here) was published on May 8, 2020 with multiple co-authors in the journal Science.
