GECKOFLY / A new service by drones in concept

GECKOFLY
GECKOFLY

The concept of GECKOFLY is based on the bionics studies on the movements of the geckos and a new drone service is born from that. Adhesion mechanism, motion control and contact mechanics of the feet of gecko are to be studied so as to develop new bionic materials for the manufacture of the four stents of the drone. Meanwhile, the design of the chassis draws on the working principles of the vacuum cleaner, and through the process of blowing dust, removing dust and filtering dust the air is discharged from the drone body after being purified. In addition, the drone can be operated in the same way as original ones.
