Architect turns a disused Bull Fighting Ring into the Drone Hub of the Future

An architect studying at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia in Barcelona, Spain, has today released details of a design for the drone transportation hub of the future.  This project is unique for two reasons - the first is that the design repurposes a disused bullfighting ring from the early 1900s, and the second is that he has released the design and associated models to the community for comment, modification and…

Interesting bird style landing "the perching drone"

I read this on the newspaper today and i think this is one interesting genius way to land a UAV (the bird style). 

Researchers combined a morphing wing drone and machine learning algorithms to create a system that lets the machine perform perched landings on the ground. The fixed wing aircraft also has the ability to land in small or confine places, which deliver aid in disasters

These researchers from the University of Bristol and BMT Defence Services did a great job :-D well done!

The article you can read it here …
